The Rock Centered but Ominous.

Aerial View from the East of Alcatraz with long end of day shaddows. Looks ominous and unapproachable.

Information on Alcatraz:
Alcatraz Island offers a close-up look at the site of the first lighthouse and US fort on the West Coast, the infamous federal penitentiary long off-limits to the public, and the 18 month occupation by Indians of All Tribes which saved the tribes. Rich in history, there is also a natural side to the Rock - gardens, tide pools, bird colonies, and bay views beyond compare.
