The Golden Gate and Fog

Posted by Bill Brown (California, United States) on 19 September 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Oh no, not another Golden Gate Bridge photo ... well I had an occasion to be in San Francisco last weekend so I wanted to capture a few more images of the bridge to add to my collection. As luck would have it, I encountered the famous San Francisco fog. Rather than be outdone, I decided to go for a b&w series. This first image shows Fort Point and the Bridge.

Here are a few facts on the Golden Gate Bridge:
It was completed in April 1937.
It is the most photographed US landmark, and most photographed bridge in the world.
More people die by suicide at the Golden Gate Bridge than at any other site in the world. People have been known to travel to San Francisco specifically to jump off the bridge.

She comes up fresh every time . . the weather there ensures no two shots are ever the same !

Regardless of how many times I see this bridge, it never fails to impress! The fog adds a wonderful touch to this well framed shot Bill! Bravo! ;-)

Beautiful image. When I was a kid, my dad was stationed at the Presidio. We used to go to the old Ft. Point (the building in the picture) and go fishing. I never appreciated the view when I was young.
