Sunset from Coit Tower

On arriving at my accommodation I asked the receptionist where to get the best views of the city. They pointed to Coit Tower on the map. This 64 metre tall tower was built in 1933 and stands on the top of Telegraph Hill. Not knowing how long it would take to walk up the hill from the waterfront, I arrived at 4:30pm (two hours before this image was captured) with the intention of getting some night shots of the downtown area of the city.

This view is looking west, with Filbert Street on the left and Greenwich Street on the right. The church in the middle of the photograph is Saints Peter and Paul Church. On the far right of the horizon in the mist is the Golden Gate Bridge.
