I found this spot on last Christmas Eve by accident. I came back here to capture sunset this time, but I realized that the church building would be just a silhouette since the sun sets behind it. I had to wait until the building was lit. But at least I could get some pink hue in the lower sky. Photographed at St. Ignatius Church, San Francisco.
