This is the same famous view to San Francisco from Twin Peaks.
The Twin Peaks are two hills with an elevation of about 925 feet (282 m) near the geographic center of San Francisco, California. Except for Mount Davidson, they are the highest points in the city.
The North and South Twin Peaks are about 660 ft (200 m) apart; Twin Peaks Boulevard runs a figure eight around them. The peaks form a divide for the summer coastal fog pushed in from the Pacific Ocean. Their west-facing slopes often get fog and strong winds, while the east-facing slopes receive more sun and warmth. Elevation at each summit is just over 900 feet (270 m). Thin, sandy soil is commonplace on Twin Peaks, making them susceptible to erosion.

amazing panorama can be seen from this POV and you made the most of it. I like the clarity and very good sharpness with which one can admire the cityscape right up to horizon. The bendy road created in here very interesting foreground and you captured two cars negotiating it in perfect place.
Great colors and well managed light

Very good dominant point of view with a nice curver road
If I was there I'll make a stittch of a big panoramic view :) 180° it's enough

This is a fascinating panorama of San Francisco. The curving road to Twin Peaks creates a fine foreground, and down below the wide boulevard cuts through the city along an elegant diagonal. I don't have much interest in the US, but this is one of the relatively few places in the country I could imagine visiting.

did I miss this view while in SF or what?
where the heck did you get this photo from?
i'm totally surprised, happy for you but disapointed in myself - oh well, guess I'll have to go back.
looks like you had excellent weather too, wicked shot! love the view you got, and the road curve is nice too.
hope you're recovering from the time changes.

It may be a classic view, but its new to me, and its awesome!! I love the skyline of this city, and have never seen it presented this way. All of the skyscrapers rise majestically from the concrete jungle, and the curving road and dead straight one leading into the cities heart are such perfect compliments to each other. Very cool image, thanks for sharing.

Fine panoramic view of a major chunk of downtown San Francisco. The public park at Twin Peaks is very popular with the locals and also accessed by the City's public bus system. Sun bathing at the Park is the most popular activity.
Thanks for sharing,

Great view of the city, with lots of details to enjoy. I really like that you included the curved road in the foreground. It's interesting to see mostly houses in the front, and then see the progression to skyscrapers the closer you get to the harbor. Very nice depth and colors, too.

Superbe point de vue en plongée sur la ville avec la route sinueuse en avant-plan. J'aime bien le boulevard qui sépare la ville en deux. Lumière parfaite pour nous permettre de bien apprécier le paysage. Très bien fait.

fantastica panoramica, c'è molta profondità e ottima qualità.
Interessante la composizione con la strada e le due auto.

Excellent shot, the hill and the road in the foreground gives some depth. In the alignment, the big avenue structures the picture and directly leads our eyes to the high buildings. Nice DOF and light.
