Pier-ing out at San Francisco

view my photos on black


While I was at the marina, I was mostly focused on the bridge. It was a huge suprize when I finally turned around and noticed that San Fran was glowing, there were clouds hovering over the city, the sky was a haze of color and the moon was full. I guess it's easy to miss a lot when you're not looking. I very carefully climbed/slid down the mossy rocks below the chain and railing to get to a place where I could frame the shot with some foreground rocks.

I seem to be getting a fairly serious color cast when using more than one GND. Anyone else have this problem?

Anyway, a pleasant enough shot to post.
