Living on the west side of the Bay Area four miles from the Pacific Ocean and about two miles from the San Francisco Bay the weather is pretty mild. Summer rarely gets real hot and when it does it only lasts a few days. Those westerly breezes from the cold Pacific get sucked into the hot Central Valley and before you can say “fog” it cools off. So when those rare, really warm days show up you get to see things you may not recognize at first… heat waves. Looking through a long telephoto lens toward downtown San Francisco you even get some man-made art filters. Here’s a look at the Castro District from about a mile away on the top of Twin Peaks. Warmth adds distortion from a mile’s worth of heat waves.
