Golden Gate Bridge and Fog - 1 of 3

Posted by
Bill Brown (California, United States) on 19 May 2010 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

Two things come to mind when you think about San Francisco; one is the Golden Gate Bridge and the other is the fog that frequently rolls in. I was in San Francisco this past weekend and since I had been shooting bridges lately, I wanted to capture a few shots of the icon Golden Gate Bridge. As luck would have it, the fog rolled in.

Canon PowerShot G10 1/320 second F/8.0 ISO 200 7 mm

@Tamara: Thank you Tamara! As I was driving into San Francisco I could see off in the distance that the fog was building and I said to myself, this is going to be good.
