There are a couple of vista points along 280 just south of 92.

I recognize that first shot. Neat area with cool trees.

Can anyone recommend a good location to photograph the bay area at sunrise/sunset? I'm specifically looking for a view from atop the mountains on the Peninsula side of the bay. I can't tell you how many times I've driven down 92 from 280 and wondered where I could pull over to snap a shot of the awesome view.

You can get an absolutely STUNNING view of the southern bay from Mt. Umunhum at dawn.

Hey everyone! I'm with my girlfriend and left Montreal for a huge road trip! We are in Oregon right now and will probably be in San Francisco in two days. Anyone up to show us around, shoot and have fun?

Just let us know, we found someone from POTN in Seattle and had lots of fun!

Thanks :)

Did you ever make it to the Bay Area, and did you find someone to meet up with?

Has any POTN Bay Area (North CA) member had a chance to take pictures of the new LED rigged Bay Bridge?

Can someone give me GPS coordinates of this location (the 1st photo): http://www.sfgate.com …e-57944/photo-4287233.php (external link)

I prefer Pachelbels lesser known work, Canon in L and the 99 cent menu club.
