Moon Over My Money (Explore #3)

Newer Older

The skyline of San Francisco's famous financial district as seen from Pier 14 during evening nautical twilight. This was shot during our Night Eyes Photo Workshop last night with fellow instructor Matt Granz. We were showing our class the many interesting subjects along the waterfront, including the ferry building tower and Sinbad's sign. It is a lovely sight indeed from the end of the pier.

To the far right, one can see the Embarcadero Towers and the tip of the Transamerica building poking up from behind. To the left, more great skscrapers including some elegant condos. Just out of frame to the left is the West anchorage of the Bay Bridge.

My title is a play on the old 1930's song, "Moon Over Miami"

I used the O-GPS1 accessory to plot my exact location on the map.

Lens is the Sigma 10-20 at 10mm. This photo got as high as #3 on EXPLORE 8/26/12. Thanks!!
