Shoreline Park at Oakland Port - Gigapixel
The Bay Area

Oakland Port has gained this really pleasant park at some point in the last few years. There's a picnic area and also this view of the waterfront, including the skyline of san francisco and oakland port.

Geek note: According to many local residents, The design of the AT-AT, in The Empire Strikes Back, was inspired by the shape of the container cranes that you see here. However, according to George Lucas, this appears to be only a myth.
