Fog at Pier 28

Posted by
Stephen Phillips (San Francisco, United States) on 20 February 2010 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

The Embarcadero in San Francisco

This spot will look familiar to those of you who visit here regularly. It is about three blocks from my office. I had just driven across the Bay Bridge and the fog on it was as dense as any I'd ever seen.

As soon as I touched-down in San Francisco - I had to grab the camera and explore possibilities. Yesterday's post was taken from the other side of the bridge - about ten minutes earlier. Here - it is about the time of sunrise. The lights on the bridge were shut-off just after I made this capture.

This looks almost surreal with the fog and no people to be found.

Wonderful atmosphere Stephen... full of drama! Enjoy how you composed the shot; the bridge is pretty compelling and mysterious - like a "UFO"!:-) Have a great weekend!

Wow, this is another awesome view. SF is an ever-changing pallette of sights, colors, lights and interesting things. How blessed you are to live where you do.

Like a collection of small bonfires, or beacons, spreading a warning!

I love the way the bridge is lost in the fog. The mist takes away all of the scale-- it could be an enormous structure high in the skies.

It looks like a spaceship over the road. I live in SF and I know where this was taken. Very unique and well done.

Stunning image Stephen, great work with the fog, creates a surreal effect here. Love how the Bay Bridge appears to be suspended in mid-air.

Another great shot with the fog - this also has such a lovely dreamy feel to it. And the bridge disappearing into the fog looks extra special.
