Wind Through The Golden Gate

Posted by
Stephen Phillips (San Francisco, United States) on 4 February 2011 in Sport & Recreation and Portfolio.

Sailboats, a kite-surfer, and a wind-boarder - all making way as the sun shines faintly through the marine overcast. It will be dark before too long - and like a bunch of kids - no one wants to head home. Just one more run...

@Denny Jump Photo: Thanks, Denny - there's a companion image that goes with this one - but I'll not get to it for a few days. Very nice to hear from you.

The ebbing light is most glorious and adds a wonderful backdrop of mystery to the
looming magnificence of the bridge. The water is mesmerizingly very beautiful also
in this incredible capture from a perfect vantage point.

I so pine for sailing on open water or (even though I have never done it) parasailing. I would settle just to see the waterways free of ice. Beautiful image with the pastel sky and the reflection of the water. Thanks for posting it.
