Palace of Fine Arts, San Francisco, California

    Newer Older

    The Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco, California at sunrise.
    The Palace of Fine Arts was built in 1915 for the Panama-Pacific Exposition, today we know it as the Worlds Fair. The domed structure was named the Tower of Jewels. The PoFA is currently undergoing renovation so the only access is from the pond. Not sure how long the renovation will take as we left before the Exploratorium open.

    Taken with Canon 5D Mk II w/TS-E 24mm f/4L. Used a Singh-Ray 2-8 stop Vari-ND filter from Singh-Ray Filters www.singh-ray.com/varind.html and supported on a Really Right Stuff, BH-55 ballhead, and Gitzo GT5531S carbon fiber tripod.
