scenery there doesn't quite look like SFO.
Jim Smirh
Possibly taking off 'south' toward the hills along the coast? The fog coming over those hills to the northwest sure look familiar. ;)
Yep...SFO, taking off to the Northwest over San Bruno hills. Watched many go out that direction. Great pic!

Could be SFO. Watched them when we lived there.
Leon Artac
Northwest definitely.

Fantastic picture, Nick! 5*+++

Seems like a very steep ascent. But maybe it's just the angle the photo was taken at and the zoom.
