"Winter Light on Golden Gate Bridge"
Location: Baker Beach, San Francisco, California.

Winter brings with it unique opportunity to see the bridge lit up at sunset against the dark storm clouds. Such light is rare and I could manage to click just a few shots before sun went behind the clouds and all contrast in the scene was lost.

Tech Info and Tip:
Lens: Canon EF 70-200 f/4L IS @ 78mm
Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mk II
Exposure: 1.3sec at f/18 and ISO 50
Filters: LEE ND Grads 0.9 soft edge and 0.75 hard edge upside down

There is a hill right behind from where I shot this image and the sun goes behind the hill at sunset thus giving a very short time window in which such light can be obtained on the bridge.
