File:San francisco in fog with rays.jpg


English: Out of fog Bay Bridge and Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco in fog and w:crepuscular rays. The image was sent to Dr. Andrew T. Young,. Here's his description: "... it's unusual to see these shadows so clearly at such an oblique geometry: usually, the crepuscular rays are best seen in forward scattering, and much less well in back-scattering.But here, you're looking almost at right angles to the illuminating rays."
Panorama stitched from images photographed at the same time, the same date and the same place ( Commons:Featured_picture_candidates/File:San_francisco_in_fog_with_rays.jpg).
