A photographer sits on a bench, his back to the camera, taking a photo of the Berkeley flats and the bay from the Berkeley Hills. The sky is lit up at sunset.
Jordan Cortes takes a photo of sunset from Claremont Canyon on Aug. 13 while on a hike with his father, Jesse, also an avid photographer, in Claremont Canyon. “It was a super nice night,” Jesse Cortes said. “We knew there were a lot of clouds, and we could see kind of low fog on the bay when we were hiking up. There was even a bit of a rainbow on the other side of the hills.” Credit: Jesse Cortes
