The Golden Gate Bridge at Dusk

Daily Photo - The Golden Gate Bridge at Dusk

I had spent the previous night up in Napa, visiting my mom and grandmother. This was a long day with a stop in Petaluma to see Leo's operation, a fast hike through the Muir Woods, and then a visit to the Golden Gate Bridge to catch its majesty at sunset.

 

I'm sure locals know this spot very well, but I found it thanks to Google Earth. I knew it would be a cool spot, but driving to these spots is always a bit sketchy when you have never been there before. It appeared to be a simple jog off Highway 1, and it actually was. It's nice when something that looks easy ends up actually being easy! This isn't usually the case. Even better, the wind wasn't howling a mile a minute, which I think can happen around here if you don't watch out!

 

After I took this, I could hardly wait to get back home to process the final image. I don't know about y'all, but I find the post-processing just as fun as the actual shooting... I really get a kick out of it!

 

New Free Video Coming Soon

Tonight I edited together another video about how I took a photo in New Zealand. I'll get it uploaded soon to share with everyone! In the meantime, you can check out others in the Video section of the website.
