Fort Point and Sutro Baths in San Francisco, CA

I know it has been a while but all of these photos were taken on the day of the Blue Angels air show in San Francisco. You can see those photos here. Today, I have photos (both HDR and regular shots) from Fort Point and Sutro Baths of San Francisco, CA. I also have a few bird photos. Hope you enjoy.

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing. See my best San Francisco photos here.

I think this might be an Eared Grebe (Podiceps nigricollis). Not too sure.



One of the tunnels at Fort Point. 

Sutro Baths (The Cave). The cave with lit by my Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT, but still used a fairly long exposure.

HDR of the tunnel.

HDR of the tunnel facing the other way. 

Hole in the wall. Ocean under it. I'm guessing the cave floods during high tide. I did see some puddles in the cave, and the ground was kind of wet. 

The other side of the tunnel. Just some rocks and then the ocean. Can't proceed anymore as there is a chain saying keep back. 

Here is a shot outside of the tunnel. A "natural bridge" formation on the right, and the restaurant/visitor center of Cliff House on the left. 

Here is a shot of the "natural bridge" formation and the rocks. This was shot with no filters. 

Same scene as above but now with a ND filter. See how the ND filter extended the exposure and smoothed out the ocean? One great benefit of having an ND filter, but you do need a tripod for these shots. 

Here is another ND filter shot of the ocean scenery. 

Forgot why I took another shot, but here it is. LOL

Sunset over Sutro Baths. 

I hope you have enjoyed these photos from Fort Point and Sutro Baths. If you plan on visiting San Francisco sometimes, you should definitely check out these 2 places. The scenery is beautiful. Although access to Cliff House might be challenging to the disabled and the elderly as there are a lot of stairs to go up and down on (pretty sure you get my point).
