Evening Shot of the San Francisco Skyline from Coit Tower


Click for the full-size version

This gorgeous photo of the evening skyline was taken by local photographer Scott Mansfield. It was taken half way up Coit Tower in North Beach.

Watching the city electrify, as the night approaches, is a wonderfully meditative experience.  It happens gradually, individual windows turning on adding single squares of light, slowly filling the foreground with a mixture of tungsten, fluorescent and halogen light.  All the while the sky, depending on conditions, evolves through a color palette unique to that particular day.

Scott goes on to describe the complex process of how he shot this photo on his blog, Scott Mansfield Photography. There are some great photos on his blog featuring architecture and urban landscapes, check it out! You can also follow him on Twitter at @scottmansfield.
