    The weather was poor when I walked down to China Beach near the Sea Cliff section of San Francisco. So I converted the color version and processed as B&W.

    Nice angle! It looks very familiar...

    I had a ton of fun shooting there over summer. Had some treacherous encounters with my tripod set up and some waves, but all survived.

    I thought the beach south of the Golden Gate was Baker's Beach?

    Baker Beach is closer to the bridge and accessed through The Presidio. Near the end of Sea Cliff Avenue is China Beach. It is hard to find.....

    Sea Cliff is the area between about 22nd & 30th Avenues (the "Avenues" section of SF) off Lake Street (I lived at 22nd and Lake at one time).

    It's a better view from Baker Beach!


    Thank you Antartican!

    Nice shot. Thats the thing about San Fran...Gorgeous city but not very inviting weather for photography. I spent the whole day there once after a business travel and all my pictures were crappy due to weather....and a little bit that I did not know what I was doing and was using a camera that fit in my pocket lol. I can't wait to go back and try again.

    Thank you Atlas77! I'll meet you there!


    Thank you jensgt! Weather sure can be a challenge there.....rain in the winter, fog in the summer. The best air conditions are in the cold days of winter. But remember what Mark Twain said, "The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco."
