Alcatraz Industries Building

Here’s the Industries Building.  Unfortunately, this whole part of the island is crumbling and reclaimed by roosting seagulls, so it’s off-limits.  When I arrived at this spot, several photographers were a little further down the ramp shooting this same angle.  I opted to wait for them to finish and set up higher on the ramp so that the lights of Sausalito and Tiburon shone through the 2nd floor windows.  This f/8 291 second exposure was lit by ambient light only–mostly sodium vapor light and a little moonlight coming through the clouds too.
