Tag Archives: Sutro Baths

On a clear afternoon

From yesterday’s commute stop, this was the view looking northwest from above the Sutro Baths ruins. The curved coloration in the ocean in the right half of the frame is silt from the receding tide of the San Francisco Bay. The landmass in the distance is the Point Reyes National Seashore, and just barely visible on the horizon in the left third of the frame is the Farallon Islands.

Because it was pleasantly warm and fog free today in San Fransisco, I braved a much longer commute and headed down to the Great Highway looking for photo ops. I stopped at Ocean Beach, the Sutro Baths and the Land’s End Trail, and grabbed a nice batch of shots. I got several I particularly liked so I’ll no doubt be posting more during the week. Here’s the first offering–a cypress grove at the north end of the Sutro Baths.

I didn’t have a polarizer on my lens. The sideways blue gradient is due to the angle and intensity of the sun relative to my position to the scene.
