Golden Gate Bridge and city 2 Gigapixel

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.

San Francisco high detail from Marin

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.

Ship goes under GG Bridge from Marin

Panorama from Bay Bridge in 1971

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.

San Francisco and Bay from Helicopter

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.
