Today’s picture is, of course, a picture of the island of Alcatraz, in the middle of San Francisco Bay. This was taken from Treasure Island, which is a decommissioned Naval base or something. I don’t actually know any of the details, because honestly, I don’t care. But, it’s there, and I was there, and now this picture is there. Nice.

Notes: Canon EOS Rebel T1i, Canon 55-250mm IS lens. 1/500s, f/14, ISO 100. Focal length: 154mm.

Hey again everyone. Today’s picture was taken from Treasure Island, which is this little splotch of land out in the Bay off of San Francisco. It was formerly a naval base or something, but now it’s the place where a friend of mine recently got married. That explains why I was there. What’s your excuse?

I’d be lying if I said I didn’t do some tweaking on this one. Mostly just bumping up the contrast a little bit, to cut through the haze. But I swear the water looked all inky like that even before I touched it up. It was right around this time that I got my new Canon 55-250mm low-end telephoto (to replace my old Quantaray 70-300mm low-end telephoto), but I can’t remember if I actually had it yet on this trip. I’m going to go ahead and guess yes, and thus tag the post with that one. But that could be wrong. Whatever.
