This orthorectified image shows the coast of the state of California, USA. Part of the city of San Francisco appears as a white area along the shores of the San Francisco Bay, by the right edge. Several bridges are visible as white lines crossing the bay.

Point Reyes, a prominent cape on the Pacific coast of northern California, is also visible in the upper left corner. It is located in Marin County approximately 30 miles west-northwest of San Francisco. The Point Reyes Peninsula is bounded by Tomales Bay on the northeast and Bolinas Lagoon on the southeast. The headland is protected as part of Point Reyes National Seashore.
