Aquarium of the Bay

San Francisco is often regarded as one of America's most beautiful cities, but it's a pickle for photographers because it's so often shrouded in fog. The weather usually doesn't lift until lunchtime, so photographer and city native Eros Hoagland recommends taking pictures indoors for the morning. At the Aquarium of the Bay on Pier 39, visitors can get a 180-degree view of marine life in this tunnel and go face-to-face with sharks. The aquarium's artificial lights provide excellent backlight for dramatic photography.
