"Golden Gate Bridge and Rain"
Location: Crissy Field, San Francisco, California.

I always like to visit Golden Gate area. It is such an inspiring engineering feat and an aswsome icon by itself. But watching from Crissy Field with the hills Marin Headlands in the background and rain clouds above is just that much more special. The fog like impressions above the bridge is actually rain which had just started before I clicked this image. The long exposure captued the trail of raindrops in the sky and also erased the distractions in water. I liked how it turned out in the end.

Tech Info and Tip:
Lens: Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L @51mm
Camera: Canon 5D Mk II
Exposure: 6sec at f/13 and ISO 50
Filters: Circular polarizer

The circular polarizer helps darken the sky and bring out the contrast in the scene.
