Walking the San Francisco Maritime Aquatic Park

Just beyond Fisherman’s Wharf at the far end of Jefferson Street is the San Francisco Maritime Aquatic Park.  In the early morning sunlight, the walk from the Hyde Street Pier (Hyde at Jefferson Sts.) to the curving pier to the west is a natural stress reducer.   From the bright blue of the bay and the sky to the sunlit Golden Gate Bridge to the west, the views are as inspiring as can be found in any urban environment.  The sounds of the seabirds and the gentle surf, the scent of the seawater and solitude of the bay with the city as a backdrop is very special.

Photos taken with a Leica M8 and Carl Zeiss Biogon 21mm f/2.8 or Summilux 75mm f/1.4 lens.
