Photo Gallery of the Concord Naval Weapons Station

I have been intimately involved in reuse planning for the 5100-acre Concord Naval Weapons Station. As a result, I have had the opportunity to photograph the base from many different places – from the air, from the ground, from the perimeter, and from the ridges of the Los Medanos Hills above. I have uploaded a gallery with a small sampling of those images:

    Fantastic composition on each and every shot! Equal to any professionally produced portfolio. So ok, maybe Scott Hein is a part-time photographer. I've seen amateur photographers and Scott is no amateur, despite what he says.

    We can only hope the restoration of lands will live up to the potential the photography shows.
