I had the good fortune to spend the past few days staying in Marin County just north of San Francisco attending an exceptional coaching class. I decided to pack a camera just in case I got the chance to spend some time at the Golden Gate Bridge, one of my most favorite spots.
I decided Friday evening was my chance. The weather was clear and sunny with no fog obscuring the bridge, probably the only time I can remember not having any fog. To cap it off I noticed it was a full moon, another complete fluke and so I figured I must be able to capture some satisfying images.
As I drove up the road on Marin headland all the parking looked to be full as I kept on driving I finally found a space away from a viewpoint, picked up my gear and started to hike up the road arriving a great spot with a good unobstructed view of both towers. I had about 30 mins until the sun went down and I gradually started capturing the scene.
After a while I looked around and noticed a tunnel behind me leading out to a cliff top view of the Pacific Ocean with the sun rapidly dropping to the horizon and I was really pleased to see some cyclists looking out towards the setting sun. They formed some nice silhouettes against the sun, perhaps a more satisfying picture than those I came to capture of the bridge.
Anyhow, over a period of an hour I captured the various scenes below and with the aid of some different post production techniques I have some different views of the Golden Gate Bridge. I hope you enjoy them and to satisfy my curiosity please let me know you like best. Thanks!
