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.

Water currents in the Pacific Ocean off the west coast of California make interesting patterns as they swirl around Point Reyes (top) and out of the San Francisco Bay (right).

Point Reyes is a prominent cape in Marin County approximately 30 mi (48 km) west-northwest of San Francisco. The term is often applied to the Point Reyes Peninsula, the region bounded by Tomales Bay on the northeast and Bolinas Lagoon on the southeast. The headland is protected as part of Point Reyes National Seashore. In this orthorectified image, Inverness Ridge can be seen running along the peninsula’s northwest-southeast spine.

To the southeast, the city of San Francisco glows at the northern end of the San Francisco Peninsula, with the Pacific Ocean to the west and San Francisco Bay to the east. The Golden Gate Bridge can be seen connecting the peninsula to the Marin Hills in southern Marin County.

Part of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge (to the right of the Golden Gate) and the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge (above the Bay Bridge) can also be seen.
