"Marshall's Beach" - www.createwithlightphotography.com

This is a 30 second exposure of Marshall's Beach in San Francisco, looking towards the very famous Golden Gate Bridge.

I was in San Francisco for a conference in early May and had the opportunity to spend another wonderful evening with my good friends, Nathan Wirth , Steve-Maxx landeros , Ivan Makarov , Joe Azure and my new friends Jim Patterson and Kendra Karr . Thank you again to you all for being such wonderful hosts and company, I can't begin to tell you all how much I appreciated it. I'm really hoping to get back to San Fran towards the end of August this year, so fingers crossed. OMG, how I miss that place!!!

This was the first time I was able to get down to Marshall's Beach without monster waves trying to sweep me away. :-) There wasn't a cloud in the sky, but that didn't stop me from getting creative with my graduated filters to work the tonal angles.

The techie Stuff:

ISO: 200
Aperture: f/7.1
Exposure: 30 seconds
Focal Length: 16mm
Filters: Hitech Pro 10 stop ND filter, Lee 3 stop soft grad ND filter.
