Fog burning off over the Bay

Approximately the same perspective as my previous photo, this vista shows a finger of fog on the upper left burning off before it reaches Alcatraz. A Horizon Lines steamer is inbound, towards Oakland, while a Blue & Gold Bay Cruise vessel heads towards the Golden Gate. Of course, this picture was taken in the Presidio of San Francisco, looking towards the East Bay. The Palace of Fine Arts is in the right, and the housing on Arguello and Infantry Terrace in the middle foreground, just beyond the Redwood trees.


For those who are into details, notice the 25 mph speed check (solar-powered) on the right side of Arguello, which somehow had disappeared in the older photo, perhaps covered by fog?
