That's one of the finest photos I've ever seen of San Francisco and the fog rolling in. You've captured it perfectly. Congratulations on such a photo!! =)

I have been sitting here for a long time watching my slideshow slowly display all the favorite deviations... and came to this one... and couldn't remember seeing it before... and yet there it was in my favorites files... and I was like :wow: how could I not have raved about this one. I apparently didn't and should have. It's fabulous. Truly fabulous. :love: Just needed to say that.

Thank you so much for your comment!
Don't worry, there is nothing to figure out; I didn't do any affects whatsoever; it is the topography that makes it look like that. Here is the original file:[link]

Well I trust that its an untampered image, its just the location that allows for a crazy illusion. The way I perceive it, it looks like there are two horizons.
One very close to the bottom of the image, and one near the top. Its the fog/cloud that makes things sort of ambiguous in the inbetween.

between Berkeley and San Francisco there is the SF Bay; and in SF Bay lies Treasure island; taken a photo of all that from the hills, perhaps it gives the illusion of two horizons. Anyway, the photo is real, very real and the file I posted is the raw - original file.

here are some photos taken from about the same that perhaps help you see the area better:

Thats really awesome, I think that bridge plays an important role. Its like a gateway between the worlds.

It's beautiful, but quite confusing. Did you use some sort of effect to make the background (i.e. Bay Bridge, then San Francisco) seem closer? because the perspective looks different, though I see this view all the time. It is a very cool image anyway.

No special effects were used here....

Here is the raw file:[link]

The reason it looks like that is because it was taken from the Berkeley Hills with 200 mm tele-lens.

This is so surreal. It's disorienting, lol. What is that closer bridge? I see the Bay Bridge behind it, but I can't get my bearings. -_-

Ha, that big radio tower thing is visible from my apartment. XD

It's the new temporary bay bridge they're building.
Which I've had the opportunity to walk on xD

Really? It looks so different from the last time I saw it. And it seems so far away from the original bridge. How did you get to walk on it? I would think they'd keep it closed off.

There's the two spans of the bay bridge, one goes through yerba buena then out the other side and that one leads finally to san francisco. The thing right next to it is what they're building temporarily(crazy that it's temp) so they can construct a completely new bay bridge as the old one will eventually be completely gone. Here's some of my shots from the boat ride to yerba buena and at the cost guard dock to give you a better idea.

Not trying to take over this at all, just from the mid point between San francisoc and oakland as opposed to from the oakland side.

As for walking on it, yes it was closed off but my cousin is actually one of the heads on the bay bridge project, so I've been ont he bridge while it's closed down a few times. You don't realise how massive it is till you're standing on it, driving does no justice.

Yeah I knew there were two sections to the original Bay Bridge, intersected by Yerba Buena. What I didn't realize was that there are technically two new bridges in addition to the original; the temporary one and the permanent one. Those pictures cleared up a lot for me, lol. Thanks.

So did you go onto the new bridge or the original? Or the temporary one? Either way, you're so lucky. I would love to walk out there.

The official new one hasn't been built yet.
I've been on the one people now go over and the one still being spanned.
