I love the Lombard Street drive. Its a long line to reach the actual crooked stretch and the climb is stiff steep. I have been here countless times and have seen the place at all hours of the day and in every season's bloom. The tiny stretch is always filled with tourists and so not a photographer's delight really.
This shot was taken last year in Fall, in San Francisco. One of the last pictures of the day shot from the Coit Tower looking at Lombard Street with a dream like Sunset in the back ground.
This was taken last year at Point Lobos National Park, CA. I tried to search for the native animals of this region and a similar animal I found was a Desert Jackal to the california deserts and shores. So probably this fellow was looking for dinner when he met with our car. We stopped on our path to gaze at this God's creation standing against the Setting sun. It was specatular Golden everywhere and this guy was ready to pose. It must be around 5:30pm and I have not used any special effects in this picture.
