This piece is part of a collection of high-resolution images showcasing the Bay Area. The goal of this particular piece was to capture the essence of Alcatraz, including parts of the city and the bay, which can be challenging to do from a ferry or the wharf, which are common spots for photographing this landmark. Located just 1.25 miles from San Francisco, Alcatraz is a rocky outpost accessible only by ferry, with a fascinating history that dates back to its original name, Isla de Los Alcatraces (Island of the Pelicans). Perhaps most famously, it served as a prison until 1963. This photograph boasts an impressive 250+ megapixels, allowing for incredible detail despite being taken from 8 miles away from the island.
