Headlands Open: Mystical Photography by Frederic Larson

This is what San Francisco has looked like lately. It's cold and windy, but it's really beautiful. Love the Herb Caen quote at the bottom.
Headlands Open : Mystical Photography by Frederic Larson:

A similar photograph of this setting was published in my book Mystical San Francisco, in which Herb Caen wrote, "A real city, the kind they don't make any more. Nowadays the so-called metropolitan areas are horizontal, stretching to infinity, a pall of malls." The headlands are now open (for us photographers) to capture these angles once again. Looking at the city from the Marin Headlands on a summer evening, I photographed this scene with a Mark II Canon digital camera, using a 200mm lens set at f/22 and shooting with a 30-second shutter speed."
