Foggy Sunrise At The Golden Gate Bridge - Day 3

Golden Gate Bridge from the Marin Headlands - Marin County, California

 

So The fog rolled through the Golden Gate Bridge for a third day straight, and again, I just couldn't pass it up. I made my way out, snapped a few test shots, and like making pancakes, I tossed the first couple of images.

 

I wanted to get to a spot as close to the bridge as possible, and Battery Spencer is the place to be if you're looking for a close-up of the bridge. I tried a few wide angle compositions, but felt like the image was to "busy". After some moving around, I decided to revisit a composition that I tried last year. A little odd, but I really liked the B&W version.

  

So here is one from my third day out. I am sure this one will be my last for a while. The weather shows a few storms coming in soon, so that should break up the high pressure thats been sitting off shore causing this fog.

 

Thanks for hanging in there as I continue these foggy uploads. I really appreciate your time, and comments.

 

Also, it was great to finally meet you John. I look forward to seeing your take on the morning.
