Tele 053.jpgFinally a picture of the petroglyphs on A-mountain. They were engraved by members of the Hohokam culture.

And I also made some test-shots with my tele-converter, a Vivitar 2X7P, for a Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6. It worked fairly well, but since it was a hot day there was quite some heat haze.

Here are the last couple images I took of San Francisco with a stitched panorama that looks all right.
A closer zoom in on downtown SF and a view to the east with the Golden Gate Bridge. The clouds moving around the broadcast tower gave some nice silhouette. And a magnificent California Cypress tree (I think).

SFaround 024.jpgan abandoned military installation at the Lands End area. Since it was on the way down to the coast I though I might as well check it out. It was cool with the the fog rolling in from the sea. Some more picures in my gallery.

SFaround 097.jpgfound on the beach just like that. No, I don't typically carry Cheers! glasses around with me, LOL.
The surfer picture came out nicely. And a vessel from the NYK Line moving through the Golden Gate. The vessel is probably on its way from Japan via LA.

So I had some time today to walk around the city and got all the way to Lands End and took a nice stroll on the beach. Then a stop at Twin Peaks to get this awesome view of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge.
