A close-in pano taken from the top of Corona Heights in San Francisco. A similar view to Twin Peaks, not quite as wide, but closer to downtown. On the right is the Castro district, to the left Buena Vista park and hill.

A slightly hazy day but a great sunset from Hawk Hill looking down on the bridge and city -- 2 gigapixels, my largest yet. You can see the San Mateo bridge, people walking in the city and on the bridge -- you name it.

A near gigapixel image of SF from the Golden Gate Bridge viewpoint at sunset. You will only grasp the detail in this image from the full-rez slice. This image is the back wall of the "Brick Yard" bar and restaurant on Union St. in San Francisco.

An earlier view of this shot (much lower resolution) with a freighter sailing out through the gate. Fog creeps into the City in this summer shot from June, 2000.

Panorama: San Francisco, 1971, from the Bay Bridge

What's strange about this panorama? It's from the top of the Bay Bridge but the unusual thing is that it's from 1971. Look at the Embarcadero freeway, and at the brand-new Pyramid building.

My friend Bruce Steinberg, artist and photographer, was doing a book on the Bay Bridge. When up at the top, he decided to snap a series of overlapping slides of the view, not knowing that some day computers would be able to blend them. I scanned the mouldy slides and made the panorama.

Panorama: Helicopter Panorama of San Francisco Bay, SF and Oakland and Bay Bridge

A helicopter panorama of San Francisco and Oakland, shot about 2000' above and south of the Bay Bridge. Due to helicopter movement the two ends don't join up which is why you see a repeat of some of San Francisco. Helicopter panoramas are new (these are some of the first in the world) and difficult.


Panorama: Sunset on the San Francisco Bay from Mt. Tam
