Fog Over Golden Gate Bridge
Hawk Hill, San Francisco, CA
On this particular morning the fog at the Golden Gate Bridge was just at the bridge's deck level. Crossing over the Bridge from San Francisco into Marin County was an eery feeling as I was engulfed in fog at the same time as being able to see the stars above. As I drove up to Hawk Hill I looked down on a beautiful scene below me: the Golden Gate Bridge glowing, San Francisco peaking it's head out above the blanket, and the beautiful curves of Conzulman Road winding towards me. As the sun rose and began washing out the color of the bridge and the city lights I decided to try a number of different compositions and shutter lengths. Here I focused on the fog as it began to blow off from the tree line and disappear as the sun baked it away. Leaving the shutter open for 30 seconds captured the movement as the fog began to dissipate. Above the bridge you can see the fog leaving, beginning to reveal Alcatraz. This was such a beautiful scene I had to post more than one photograph from here!
