    I'm with atcy -- I've never seen a picture from this perspective again. Very fresh.

    Thanks everyone. This picture was my first of three tries to get this shot. You have to hike a mile or so to get to this point, but it isn't too hard to get to. I was never super happy with the sharpness of this image, so I tried to take it again two more times, but those shots were much blurrier. It's very windy at this spot and definitely a bit of a challenge for me. I'll have to try again someday with a much heavier tripod. I was using a very inexpensive, and not very good, Sigma 100-300 zoom lens at the time, so that probably also contributed to the lack of sharpness.
    If you are ever in this area, it is definitely worth the hike.

    That's a great shot. The misty, receding distance really adds to the atmosphere.

    Hi Patrick, nice shot of the Golden Gate.
  • Mr. Sardonicus 7y

    that's wonderful. i love the haze and the way one column frames another. and black and white was a nice choice.

    I like how your perspective almost makes it look like a wheel.
