great light and composition.... looks like a gloomy day.....

@Susan: A very typical summer day here. Starting-off with dense fog. Giving way to sunshine. Becoming chill and windy around 4 PM as the fog moves back in. Today's forecast; a very balmy 68° F.

San Francisco in the summer can stay in the upper fifties during the day. Going a mere 10 miles north, east, or south of here will find temperatures in the nineties or even hotter. That cold ocean current along the beach is a powerful air-conditioner.

San Francisco is certainly a beautiful city! Love this view of it. The colors are very pretty, too... especially the water. So, Glenn, when I'm really sick of the heat and humidity here I can move there!!! :-) Fifties sounds really good to me right now.

Sorry, Stephen.

@Betty: Sorry ? - Heavens, Betty - I still have a grin on my face.

Viewfinder from Bradenton, FL, United States

Haha! Betty has been one of my regulars as I unfold our own SF experience. Your shot today is so familiar-looking, now that I've been there. It's a fabulous city, and your shot represents it well. Were you on the water when you took this?

@Viewfinder: Thanks, Glenn - I think we've got Betty playing Tony Bennett's song as she packs her bags. --- And not on water - this was taken from Treasure Island.

Judy from Brooksville, Florida, United States

I'm happy I checked out your pbase image (full size is dramatic) and the maping to see you were on Treasure Island to take this wonderful shot. A very good and unique perspective.
