@JPS: Hi there, JPS! This background and the water is not completely white - there are subtle grays here, as you will see - stay tuned.
Great point of view. Were you out on a boat???

@Marcie: Hi there Marcie. Aquatic Park is defined by a large semi-circular pier wrapping around the waterfront. This provides a breakwater, a fishing pier and a very pleasant promenade with intimate views of The Golden Gate and of Alcatraz. Unfortunately, the old concrete structure is in sad disrepair and most of the outboard side of the pier is closed and barricaded. But you can still walk the whole length and the views are well worth it.
Here is the Google view: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=94133&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=San+Francisco,+California+94133&ll=37.809123,-122.425075&spn=0.009951,0.026157&t=h&z=16
Beautiful composition where the white of the sky becomes confused with that some water
I like the composition... I'm really looking forward to see more :) Have a nice sunday Stephen.

A very beautiful view and it sure looks like a nice clean city now. I love that
there is a park there also, which I would find unusual but so welcome. A
particularly fine image of a beautiful city.

Great cityscape you have captured here...very well composed.
Superb view, indeed.

Gosh how many times have I seen that pier and I forgot about it - I was wondering the same thing that Marcie was. Glad you explained/reminded me. This is definitely a great view I need to go out there next time I am there or maybe the time after that.. I will be there beginning Friday night for 1 week but will be enjoying my new baby granddaughter in the outer richmond district! Take care Stephen!

Nice vantage point. I went there right after our coffee before I left Kalifornia and just had a nice time ...

An oasis in the city, I have a feeling this would be one of my hangouts if I were there.
