Photo: A Different View of San Francisco

Tonight I was able to capture a slightly different view of San Francisco.  As we head into the fall, the San Francisco Bay Area is granted a few days where a high pressure system sits over the Bay Area and the wind moves from the central valley out to the ocean.  During times like these, San Francisco can be free from fog or can still have the fog pulled in off the ocean because of the heat inland.  I guess it all depends on how high of a high pressure system we get.  Today and tomorrow is such a period.

Tonight I hiked up to about 1900 feet to one of the ridge lines and was grant this gorgeous view of sunset with the Fog rolling in over San Francisco. If you click through on the photo and make your browser window as big as you can, you’ll get a larger sized image.  If you look closely, you can see the silhouette of the new One Rincon Hill tower (tallest building on your left), the Bank of America tower (tallest building in the middle and the Transamerica Pyramid.  Looking even closer you will see the tops of the cranes from the Oakland Shipyard on the near side of the bay.  If you have a really big monitor, look to the right of the Transamerica Pyramid and you’ll see one of the towers of the Bay Bridge and Coit Tower.

Weather and availability permitting, I may make another hike up the hill tomorrow evening…
