Nice pictures, simms3_redux! Thanks for sharing.

It´s a pleasure for me seeing again San Francisco, a city which I adore. These days it´s 3 years since our first and only visit, and we would like to return there to spend more days in that beautiful city. We have pending matters, like visiting Alcatraz.

Congrats and greetings from Madrid, Spain.

I would never have guessed that the first skyline was San Francisco, a new angle for me!

I only visited SF for one and a half day in 2001, way too short. Would really like to come back!

Yeah, some of the best angles of the SF skyline are like that, from the south looking north. SF's skyline runs mostly east-west, so it's wider when viewed from the north or south, and smaller looking when viewed from the east or west. But you have to be in a relatively unknown (to tourists) part of SF, driving north to SF on the freeway, on a boat, or across the bay with a giant telephoto lens to see it...which excludes a lot of visitors I guess. I'd say the most famous views visitors get of the SF skyline are from Twin Peaks, the golden gate bridge, Alcatraz, and treasure island, which have a more compressed and/or obscured view of the skyline.

Awesome pics! Rarely do forumers see San Francisco from these angles.

So...tell us about the boat!?!?
