75th Anniversary Fireworks - Golden Gate Bridge

The world's most famous bridge, the Golden Gate, celebrated her 75th birthday on the evening of May 27th with a stunning fireworks show that completely stunned and amazed the huge crowds. Fireworks illuminated jumped off the entire structure of the bridge as several barges provided background fireworks and a light show the likes San Francisco has never
seen. The Golden Gate Bridge's delicate structure and Art Deco style of days gone by served only to add grace and dignity to one of the best fireworks shows I have ever be held. It was truly a remarkable night and the yells of the crowds from across the bay seemed to indicate everyone's exuberant approval.

    Nice one, Darv. It was an incredible show, way beyond my expectations. We were shooting from down below at Kirby Cove where surprisingly there were not many photographers.
