Clear Skies over the Golden Gate
After a week of pretty heavy fog, particularly across the west of San Francisco, the skies cleared up this past weekend and the opportunity opened up for me to get a clear shot of the Golden Gate Bridge. I brought along with me my Tokina 11-16 f/2.8 and new Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 VC for the shoot. The weather was so perfect that I left my jacket at home (that’s rare, even in the summertime over here). The wife and I (and dog) sat at Crissy Field and watched the sun fall below the horizon over a light dinner that we packed (er…picked up at a local deli). After the sun set, I set up by the bridge and fired away.
I usually tote my small Surefire flashlight with me when we go night shooting, just in case. Of course, the one time I forget to bring it is the time we really needed it. Crissy Field goes completely dark at night!
Sadly, I haven’t really had a whole lot of time to dedicate to photography lately, which is a shame since the weather has been so nice. Here’s hoping the weather stays clear through the weekend!
