This orthorectified image offers a sharp view of San Francisco and the Bay Area in California, USA. The large bay in the bottom right quadrant is the San Francisco Bay, which connects to the San Pablo Bay to the northwest, which in turn connects to the Suisun Bay, upper right quadrant.

Several bridges can be seen crossing these bays, including the famous Golden Gate Bridge, close to the center, the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge, spanning the lower part of the San Francisco Bay, the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, east of the Golden Gate, and the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge, below San Pablo Bay.

Also of note is the San Francisco International Airport, whose main runways appears as a black cross on the western shores of the San Francisco Bay.
