Alcatraz and the Golden Gate
02-FEB-2008 Laura Milholland

Alcatraz and the Golden Gate

Sausalito, CA

The model depicts the bay itself, and doesn't have "land" details, although it does show the bridges.
The metal strips are copper and are used to slow down the water flow to more accurately reflect
the "drag" that occurs on the bay floor.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30

Great overview but spending a night in hotel Alcatraz must not be fun
