Bombay Beach, Salton Sea, California

Bombay Beach, Imperial County, California

This historical aerial photograph shows California Highway 111 as it runs along the Salton Sea shoreline in 1954 before Bombay Beach, California was developed. Bombay Beach is the lowest community in the United States at 223' below sea level. Bombay Beach was once a thriving resort where guests swam, water skied and golfed. The Salton Sea ecosystem deteriorated rapidly in the 1970s as agricultural run off and pesticides polluted the sea which has no run-off. Bombay Beach marks the southern end of the San Andreas fault. A 2011 documentary film entitled Bombay Beach directed and produced by Israeli filmmaker Alma Har'el about the American Dream at the edge of a desert sea won Best Feature Documentary at the Tribeca Film Festival that year. The development has turned into what Ella Morton, writing for slate.com calls 'a bleached, rusted, abandoned wasteland.'

San Francisco Giants Opening Day, April 11, 2000 Poster

This 22 x 28 inch aerial poster of San Francisco is a view created on Opening Day, April 11, 2000 at San Francisco's baseball stadium, ATT park, also once known as SBC park and PacBell park, home of the San Francisco Giants. San Francisco Giants' baseball park in San Francisco is the first privately financed stadium in major league baseball since Dodger Stadium in 1962. With a seating capacity of 41,503 the park has a unique setting at the edge of San Francisco bay, with outstanding seats--the first row of seats is only 48 feet from homeplate. The Goodyear blimp was flying and broadcasting overhead on this day. The poster also shows a containership emerging from the fog entering San Francisco bay beneath the Golden Gate bridge, an audience of boats in McCovey Cove adjacent to the ballpark, and provides an excellent view of San Francisco's South Beach marina.

Aerial Archives and the current Sonoma County Crop Report

aerial photo Sonoma Valley vineyards Maycamas Mountains

This aerial photograph of the vineyards in the Sonoma Valley and on the slopes of the Mayacamas Mountains in the fall was featured on the cover of this year's Sonoma County crop report. The report outlines the current state of Sonoma County agriculture. The report indicates that 2013 rainfall was the lowest recorded in Sonoma County history in the last 120 years. Heavy rains in Nov and Dec of 2012 mitigated the impact of the dry 2013 conditions somewhat and the total dollar value of Sonoma County's agricultural output increased by 4%. The report confirmed that 2013 provided an excellent growing season for winegrapes, resulting in high quality and quantity. More than 270,000 tons of winegrapes valued at over $600 million were processed, which represents the largest winegrape harvest in Sonoma County history.
