Painted Foggy Sunrise At The Golden Gate

The Golden Gate Bridge- Marin Headlands, Marin County.


"The thirty-five million dollar steel harp"


That's what the San Francisco Chronicle called this record setting bridge on opening day back in 1937.


When you stand at the edges of the Marin Headlands and watch the swells of fog pass through the 80,000 miles of cable, its almost as if you are watching a symphony of man and nature. The winds passing over the hillsides. The sounds of the bridge's two fog horns blowing. The faint sounds of the ocean currents crashing on the beaches bellow... All finished off by the roar of the cars passing over as if they were crowds of people cheering for more.


What more can I really say? This is a view I will never get sick of. Its a unique experience every time.
