Golden Gate 75th Anneversary

I went up to san francisco tonight to attend the golden gate bridge 75th anniversary celebration which ended this evening with fireworks. I've been hearing news reports from many different local media the last few weeks regarding the celebration so when I got off at 3pm today I raced up to the city expecting to fight through the crowds to get this shot. when I finally arrived I was pleasantly surprised as the city wasn't nearly as bad as I was expecting and there were far less people than I anticipated. Anyways I managed to find a parking spot right at the top of the hill, hiked up the trail to the Marin headlands and got set up. I met a few really great people up there in the line of the tens of tripods set up and waiting but after braving the cold and the wind for the last four hours of daylight this is what I ended up with from tonight.

 

I may post a couple more in the days that follow.
