Fog Over Golden Gate Bridge
San Francisco, California
I liked this photo because the light around the south tower (the right tower) is amazing. I'm not really sure why I didn't post this as my original flickr photo -- I think I wanted to originally go with a wider crop (the photo I did post) but decided to them crop it down similar to this shot. I actually prefer this photo now that I already posted the other one :P
Last week Willie and I made an attempt at getting the Golden Gate Bridge with low fog. Unfortunately there was either no fog, too much fog, or back to no fog. This week the fog has been nice and low but we were watching it on the webcams from our homes and not with our own eyes. We decided to wake up early this morning and drive up and hope the fog would cooperate. Luckily, it did … mostly! It was a bit higher than we wanted but it still managed to show enough of the bridge to make the photo kinda interesting. We're gonna keep trying (we even found a better spot to shoot from for next time).
This is a 4 shot stitched panoramic.
