Sunset

A favorite photographic pursuit of mine is to shoot lineups - things aligned with each other - and one of the best is the superposition of the towers of the Golden Gate Bridge, back to back. I've always known there was a spot, high up in the Marin Headlands, where I could get the top of one tower through the other. But I could never figure out an easy way to get there - so today, I bit the bullet and hiked out to it. This shot doesn't have the best light or composition, but it gives you a taste of what it looks like from up there.

 

The spot is here:

Any of you Bay Area geo-gurus know a better route than the Coast trail from Conzelman? I'd love to get my super-telephoto rig there, but carrying it up and down slippery hillsides for four miles probably isn't in the cards. There's a neighborhood on a nearby ridge, but I think that the access road is private.

 

Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, California.
