Wave crashing at Fort Point's seawall

The classic point from where plenty of folks take their picture of the shiny red Golden Gate Bridge, at the location where the Presidio of San Francisco meets the Golden Gate. Waiting patiently to get one of the larger wave swells–which broke early in the morning during flood tide–I was able to add a surprise element to the photo..

 

The green containership MS "XIN DA YANG ZHOU" of China Shipping Company leaves for the Orient on a crisp and clear day in mid-November. The hills of Marin Headlands and Fort Baker are on both sides of the far end of the bridge, which shines in the early sun; the North tower's shadow falls on the hillside near Battery Spencer.
