Weekly Photo Challenge: Pier 7, After Sunset

Pier 7 After Sunset

In San Francisco, the 2015 Fujifilm Global Photo Walk ended at the iconic Pier 7. However, the group that I was with decided to take things slow; we enjoyed the sights and even had dinner at the Ferry Building. While we didn’t stay with the main crowd, we enjoyed something most of them did not stay for: the view of the gorgeous post-sunset sky from the pier. For reference, you can see the Transamerica Pyramid on the left, and Coit Tower on the right. My group was the first to arrive at the photo walk, and the very last to leave! Thanks for the great time, folks! Larger version is viewable here.

Fun fact: I’d never been on San Francisco’s Municipal Pier until about a month ago. Lots of fishermen, bikers, and gulls. A shame that large portions of it are fenced off due to disrepair. Great view from the opposite end of Aquatic Park, though. You can see the Balclutha, the Transamerica Pyramid, and even Coit Tower in the distance.

There are a lot of photos online taken at this exact location. It’s at the base of Coit Tower. I’ve passed it a million times, but I didn’t have a decent camera to capture it until now. The building with the spires is Saints Peter and Paul Church.

Took this en route to Coit Tower last weekend. There are a lot of ways to get up there, but Montgomery Street is the most direct way from Market Street/downtown. Just have to take a lot of stairs and walk through a neighborhood hidden in the hillside…
