Golden Gate: A Foggy Evening
Location: Fort Baker, San Francisco, California, Map
Golden Gate is, by no doubt, the most beautiful bridge in the world. No wonder so many people visit San Francisco to see it. In that sense I feel very lucky that I live in the San Francisco Bay Area and not far from the bridge. This is the view of the bridge on a foggy evening from the north end at Fort Baker. I used long exposure of camera to smooth the waves in the water and give a minimalist feel to the image.
This image prints very well at 24x36in with all the details in the cables of the bridge still sharp.
