This is my final post from the San Francisco Area! I kind of waited for the best for last because I loved the Golden Gate Bridge and all the photos I was able to get. It was one of those things you save the best for last, but can’t wait any longer for it to be the last so you just go anyways – yeah – that was how it was with this timeless classic!
I was with Zach Cooper and Andy Griffin when we ended up crossing the bridge on accident because we missed the quick exit that would take us down below on San Francisco side… but instead we found a lookout point from up above on the other side that I just fell in love with! We were so close to the bridge that I just wanted to reach out and grab it! That was one of the biggest highlights of the entire trip! The whole adventure of taking these photos were certainly some to remember and I was able take some photos to remember it all.
While we were there – the City of San Francisco was getting ready for the firework celebration on the bridge the next night. They were testing several different spot lights in several locations on the bridge and that is what we were able to capture in a few of them. Andy was very intrigued by it and couldn’t wait to see what else they would do and he was able to get more photos with different lighting tests. But at the end of an exhausting and long adventure… we made our way back to Cupertino.
Enjoy the photos!
Hands down the third one is my favorite. That is one I would print. I want to go home.
The 3rd one is my favorite too… I was so close to the bridge that at my widest angle – that is all I could fit in there!
These images are gorgeous! My favorites are the last two. The others are a bit bright in some areas… at least on my screen. I love the excellent leading lines and the bottom one has an intriguing mystical foreground with a faraway golden skyline. Ooh… looks like a book cover!
I can see where it would be a tad bright, for sure. But I love them still! 🙂 The last one turned out so much better than I had hoped.
