Still My Favorite Bridge
Fuji x100 | 30 sec, f/11, ISO 200
The Bay Bridge may have just celebrated a milestone anniversary, but the beauty of the Golden Gate is unmatched. Combining beautiful weather with a holiday weekend, there was just no way I’d be able to shoot from the headlands yesterday. It was just too packed with tourists up there. So I opted for a less known area to the east of the bridge. Besides a few scattered people here and there, Suki and I basically had the whole place to ourselves.

While this is quite an enjoyable sight for me, hanging out by the water here couldn’t be more boring for Suki, who prefers to be on the move. It’s still nice to have a little bit of company, even if its reluctant company 🙂

This shot was taken about 5 minutes after the one up top. I tweaked the white balance to give the sky a cooler, bluer look, whereas the top image shows the color as I set it at the camera. Can’t decide which one I like better, but the top image is a more accurate representation of how the scene actually looked. I hope to get more fiery clouds in the background next time, but at least there were more clouds yesterday than there were when I made my last attempt at this location.
