Sacramento nights

I haven't posted any travel- or nature-related stuff here lately, so I thought I'd use today, the final day of November, as an excuse to make a post this month. I've taken plenty of photos in and around Sacramento since we moved here, but it seems like my favorite ones are always night shots. The first one here is of a canal to the west of town with a nice moon reflection.

This one is of the decommissioned Rancho Seco Nuclear Generating Station. That has a whole sad history of its own, with some gross mishandling on the side.

This is a shot along one of the many levees overlooking rivers that are found in the delta region. Unlike most river deltas, this one reaches inland from the mouth, rather than spreading outwards.

And finally, a street scene at night with some light streaking. I took this photo the same night I attempted to capture the "supermoon" which really didn't look very striking in my situation.


  1. Nice photos. It's always interesting to see other's locales.

  2. Who'da thought a decommissioned nuclear plant could be so beautiful!

  3. Have you ever taken a typewriter on an international flight? Were there any hassles presented by airport security?

    I'm going home for the holidays, and would like to take one of my smaller machines, but the mere thought of having my typewriter confiscated or damaged by some cranky thug frightens me to pieces.
