San Francisco Bay

San Francisco Bay is one of the most recognizable landforms on earth. This image includes Half-Moon Bay, the San Andreas Lakes (formed by the San Andreas fault), Golden Gate Park, Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge, Stinson Beach, essentially all of the upper and lower bays, and the lower ends of the Napa and Sonoma valleys. The ocean swells display an interesting pattern of reflection and diffraction while the bay itself is relatively smooth. The prison building on Alcatraz is clearly visible in this image as are the San Francisco waterfront and Fisherman's Wharf. The red color in this image corresponds to vegetation.

This image covers an area of approximately 38x63 miles. A full-resolution crop of the image file is available here that shows the detail present in this print.

An extended version of this image also is available. This image emphasizes the contrast between the rich color and patterns of the Pacific Ocean and this part of the California coast. Due to its extended size, special pricing applies to the extended image.
