"The Bay Lights" art installation. The San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge was recently outfitted with an enormous bank of 25,000 LED lights by artist Leo Villareal. This image was captured during a random testing sequence almost two-weeks before the official opening of the exhibit.

Oakland – San Francisco Bay Area Twilight (Super-HD Panorama 1:4). Extremely dense smoke particles from a massive grass fire that occurred about 50 miles north-east earlier in the day, are what made this beautiful red twilight possible. 10 vertical images (each 21 megapixels) were photographed with a 400mm lens from high above the city in the Oakland Hills, then digitally stitched to create this “Super-HD Panorama” of the entire Oakland / San Francisco Bay Area. The original image (from which all prints are generated) weighs in at 22,304 x 5576 pixels/300dpi, making it possible to be printed up to eight feet in length without any loss of detail.
