This looks surreal. I am impressed, big time. This is probably the best of any photo that I have seen of this group of icons.

Nice capture of the Farallon Islands. Quite rare to see it so well. I spent 3-1/2 years here (mainly high school plus a bit of junior high) and I probably only saw them this nicely 2 or 3 times.

me too, should have been in the sixes at least. I haven't seen it this clear before either. To be honest I couldn't have guessed where the farallon islands were exactly. Well done.

Special day, to be this clear! Methinks you deserved a higher score. Anyway, i enjoyed the capture.

looks like fire in the sky...would have cloned a few of the dots or buoy's out of the water, but a really good shot.

Very nice! Looks like a painting. I like the vignetting. Years ago I was driving north to south on the Golden Gate Bridge when the Blue Angels flew between the uprights right over me.
