On a Clear Day, You Can See the Farallon Islands From San Francisco

Not to be confused with the Disneyesque Farallon Restaurant on Post Street, the Farallones can only be seen from San Francisco on the clearest of days.

Atop Southeast Farallon IslandĀ is the Farallon Island Light, barely visible even in this magnified photo.

There’s a feeling I get
When I look to the west,
And my spirit is crying for leaving.

    Great photo! Would you mind if I ask where you took the photo from?

  2. sfcitizen says:

    Muchas.

    Probably I was around Twin Peaks. I left the tops of the trees in on purpose as a guide.

    That 600mm rig must weigh a ton.

  4. sfcitizen says:

    7 lbs. or so., not including the camera body.

    300mm 2.8 IS + 2.0x extender.
