The Golden Gate Bridge (wrapped in fog)

5d II + 17-40mm @ 22mm

105 sec @ f8

ISO 100


A very very foggy morning... When I 1st arrived, the bridge was completely invisible. With a little patience, I was able to come away with this. Thanks in advance for your views/favs/comments =)



So a little more about this morning...

I woke up at 4 am with a back ache and looked out the window to see high clouds and I knew from seeing it the day before that there was low fog out by the bay. So I made the hour drive out to the bridge with my fingers crossed. I got there, and it was completely fogged out. I figured I'd stick around since... I was there anyways! The fog was really moving and changing. Luckily, it got clear for about 15 min. Right as the sun crested, the fog reclaimed the bridge and I couldn't see anything but fog. So really, I gotta mark this one down to sheer luck. One other photographer wandered up right as that 15 min window was ending... not so lucky! Luck and the fact that it was probably my 10th dawn trip (8 of which failed). ;-)

    Wow, not unlike the one I took on the 26th, just 10 days later. I think you got a bit better fog on the tower though.
