I love this photo. It's beautiful.

I am also deeply amused by this comment:

"Wow thats kinda scary having a fault line so close to people."

Guess we shouldn't discuss the Hayward Fault, which runs from bottom right to top center of this shot, or all the blind thrusts under Los Angeles, or the San Andreas up the San Francisco peninsula, or perhaps, oh, the ring of fire in general.

I don't know if I'll ever completely calm down about earthquakes, but I forgets, now and then, that along with a few million other folks within an hour's drive of me, I live almost on top of one massive fault, and within easy damage distance of three others.
