Ever since I first saw someone post this view, I just HAD to have it. I never seem to tire of seeing shots from here. Problem is, this is not exactly an easily accessible location. But, thanks to the excellent support of Lisa and Annie, John and I got an opportunity to visit this place for ourselves and get our own shots. I was worried we wouldn't even get a chance to go here after a WET start to our short SF visit. The rain came down in BUCKETS the day before. We were soaked to the core shooting the south end of the Golden Gate Bridge. There were about 4 dry minutes in the whole day. Everyone around the city was talking about how they'd never seen so much rain. That night there was a big windstorm that blew all kinds of debris onto Hwy 101, including a large part of a tree. The forecast was looking even worse the next day when we were to go here. Just my luck to visit on the wettest weekend of the century.
Lucky for us, the forecast was completely wrong and it cleared in the afternoon on the following day. I think that's because the storm ran out of water after dumping the entire Pacific Ocean into the SF Bay. I'll be spending the next week drying out.
Very minimally processed and no filters used. Cloned out a few stray internal reflections and that's about it. Amazing that it came out the the camera pretty much ready to go!
Thanks Lisa and Annie, you gals are awesome!
