Angel Island at Night, 2012 and Angel Island Ablaze, 2008

Angel Island Night, 2012,   Angel Island Ablaze, 2008

A few nights ago, while driving, I was struck by how wonderfully dark Angel Island is at night. Everywhere, all around it, lights glitter in the cities surrounding the bay. Even cruise ships departing for Mexico and Alaska cast a party glow as they slowly exit the Golden Gate, but Angel Island stands quiet, an unpopulated dark place in the night. Which reminded me of this other night in 2008, when the island lit up the sky and people from all around the city drove to east beach and sat in their cars, headlights on, watching the fire in the bay.
