Golden Gate Bridge - Into The Mist

About 10 minutes after sunset with a bit of light in the sky, the crescent (and overexposed) moon came out and I saw this! No HDR.

The story:



Soon after I made the photo "Passageway", my first flickr upload, the moon came out and with the last remaining light in the sky I saw this scene. Most of the light is from the intentionally overexposed moon. It is a thin crescent but it looks full because I exposed the scene for the light on the water, not for the moon! 2 minutes also allowed the moon to move a bit, making it appear even larger!
