San Francisco Night Skyline from Treasure Island

 

Our November shoot will take interested members to Treasure Island as we watch the sun set across the bay to San Francisco.  Treasure Island was created from fill dredged from the bay in 1936 and is located between San Francisco and Oakland.

While enjoying the views of the city, Bay Bridge, and iconic buildings such as the illuminated Coit Tower and Transamerica Pyramid, you'll have an opportunity to learn night photography techniques such as long exposures (illustrating the importance of using a tripod).

As we get closer to the date, those who RSVP will learn about carpool opportunities originating from the East County area. 

Please note:  On this date, sunset is 5:01 pm, so bring your gear, dress for the cool breezy weather and hopefully you'll come back with some stunning images!

    That works for me. I'd love to catch the lights on the Embarcadero Center.

    That all sounds great for someone who has been there before but I have never been on Treasure Island.

    There is a fairly large parking area along Avenue A adjacent to the Statue of the Lady. It's a short walk to the bayfront. Another location, though probably not as desirable, are the parking spots by the guard station when you first reach the island. These are usually full.

      Ave A and 4th - sorry, well you get the picture.

      The one on Avenue A, between 5th and 6th. There is a large statue of a woman in the grassy area, from the Burning Man Festival. The statue is about 40 feet high and you can't miss it.

    Michael is very correct. When you are coming from the City, the turnoff is on the left, and it is a very tight turn. Probably a 15 mph turn. If you are coming from the east bay, I believe it is also an exit from the left lane.

    Just one observation...when you get onto the Bay Bridge heading west, stay in the *LEFT* lane. Treasure Island is a left side exit.

    November 8, 2012

    • Wayne F.

  • steve G.

    What are the plans for meeting up?

    November 8, 2012

  • Pete R.

    It looks like I will be in the city on Sunday so I'll just meet you at TI. Is there a particular spot we can meet?
