I've been sorting through photos of San Francisco because of the vintage car show, so today let's have a look at some seascapes from its Lands End.
The Lands End is a park located in the city's northwestern corner, within the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. If you've been there, you've probably seen its rugged landscape and been greeted by the heavy wind and fog too.
Since I was there in the afternoon, the west-facing coastline caused a lot of glare in my photos. Mornings appear to be better for photography, but it's difficult to pick a good time when you're on a tight travel schedule with little planning. As you can see from my photos, the weather was changing rapidly as well. Some are brighter with blue sky, while others are cloudy and foggy.
Walking around the beach and along the trails, I was very much impressed by the wild views and the power of nature. The almighty Pacific Ocean! It was not an easy pleasant walk on a gentle calm day, but, being able to get close to the windswept shoreline and crazy waves did feel refreshing.
Meanwhile, it was actually a quiet place in comparison to many other San Francisco hotspots filled with crowds. You can enjoy walking the trails winding their way around the rocky cliffs and through the woods of cypress and eucalyptus.
The Lands End Lookout visitor center opened to the public two years before my visit, in April 2012. There are also some interesting ruins and historic sites in the area, which I may show you in another post.
