I spent the afternoon hiking around some new parks in San Francisco. I figured it was a nice day to get some fresh air. At the end of the day I was able to snag this photo
So, the afternoon started with me taking the metro and a bus to Diamond Heights.
I honestly didn’t know where I was going, so I just kept hiking. I took a little back yard trail for about a quarter mile.
The trail took me past a couple different neighborhoods. If you look closely, I think these are made of giant shipping containers.
When I finally arrived at the park, the landscape started opening up, revealing a miniature canyon (on the right).
It’s a nice trail, and makes for interesting photography because of the way the canyon casts a shadow.
Some of the rock formations were pretty cool… It’s almost like something you’d see in Skyrim.
As I walked through the park, I was chasing the light, heading west.
I finished Diamond Heights pretty quickly, and figured I could catch some more pictures on Mt. Davidson Park. Little did I know, it was one hell of an incline to get there. Some of those hills were pretty brutal.
As I got near the top, I saw an MG in excellent condition. Whoever owned this really took care of it.
And when I got to the top of Mt. Davidson, I waited for an opportunity to snap a pic of San Francisco at night.
Here’s a panoramic of 10 stitched photos looking east-ish.
And that concludes my hike. I took the bus and metro home. It’s pretty easy to get to, and I recommend it to anyone who wants to check out the skyline at night, as an alternative to Twin Peaksâ€”it’s less crowded at Mt. Davidson.
I’ll be back in the future to capture the sunrise. Stay tuned!
