First Day of Spring — San Francisco.

A couple of images while working in San Francisco. Although there was heavy rain last night and this morning, conditions cleared up later in the day. The site where I am working near the UCSF campus looks over a large construction site for a new Hospital. I need to work on the white balance since the image was taken through a window tinted green (auto white balace within the camera 6008 K) . The 2nd version has the white balance corrected (6514 K). Later on when I got to my hotel I saw this sailboat at anchor in Osyter Bay.
