Golden Gate Bridge from Battery Lancaster - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
Panorama showing the Golden Gate Bridge taken from Battery Lancaster. This is probably one of the best places to view the Golden Gate Bridge from the southern side, especially in the morning when the sun lights it up. The panorama shows both the Golden Gate Bridge and the great views over San Fransisco Bay. The picture was taken early in the day with the sun on the bridge.

Lancaster Battery is just below the Golden Gate Bridge parking lot. Most people do not bother to take the short walk down the hill to this viewpoint, which has great panoramic views over San Francisco Bay, so is a much quieter place to come and see the Golden Gate Bridge.
Lancaster Battery also enjoys views over Fort Point National Historical Site which, along with Crissy Field Beach, was an important part of the maritime military defenses here at the Presidio. This is a favoured area for local San Franciscans to visit for recreation, walking, hiking and photography as well as the environmental and ecological projects based at Crissy Field.
