A Pinnacle, my Pinnacle

Newer Older

Our flight was departing back to Boston in only a couple of hours, I had just a little bit of time to get the one shot I had envisioned. I made numerous calls to get permission from this vantage point, and it finally happened with a lot of luck and quite a bit of perseverance.

Far left you have the Palace of Fine Arts and the sun that just set behind the Golden Gate Bridge. On the right you have the Coit Tower ontop of Telegraph Hill and Alcatraz in the background. Center right is the TransAmerica Pyramid.

I think it was worth all the effort and planning, I hope you do too!

Thanks for looking.

    Thank Kevin, quite a compliment coming from you. I'm still thinking about that blue angel over the water shot you took this past summer. THAT was execution!

    Ron I hope you didn't mind me putting notes here - wonderful shot here (faved this a long long time ago). I am a SF bay area native and haven't even ventured to shoot this. Am thinking that maybe I have to make do without a tripod when getting in to escape their attention.
