In April 2011, I once again arrived on the Farallon National Wildlife Refuge to start another season of seabird research working with PRBO Conservation Science. In my seventh and perhaps last season, I decided to start a photo a day challenge for myself. The challenge is to share a new and interesting photo for each day I am on the island this year.
I took advantage of the clear skies tonight to take this shot of the house. We religiously cover the windows at night to protect the nocturnal seabirds, but the long exposure captured the little light that does escape our curtains. And although we often feel as though we are alone in the middle of the Pacific, the glow of the city lights reminds us San Francisco is less than 30 miles away.
