I thoroughly enjoyed taking pictures at dawn around San Francisco with Doc. His local knowledge and experience is unparalleled. The images I have attached are straight off the memory card with no editing.

We paid $600 US (two of us - $300 each) for a five hour tour of the best spots in San Fran from 5 PM to 11PM. Well worth it. Instruction where needed was provided.
