Clouds through the Golden Gate

A stormy morning in San Francisco

Yesterday, actually. I was driving from my office up to Santa Rosa at mid morning. It had been raining and as I drove up the approach to The Golden Gate Bridge - I could see this light hitting the span and had to get off the road to capture it. Sometimes - a postcard picture just happens.

Never ceases to amaze me how many different angles and approaches you find to this bridge.

Absolutely Stephen - I would have done the same thing. CUrly is right about all the angles and looks but I never get tired of seeing any of them - I am sure you don't either. Kudo's for pulling off the road..when we are alone we do it almost automatically...with a "non-photography" passenger...I always have second thoughts and then wind up regretting it later...When it comes to photography, I am trying to adopt the motto of Be Selfish"...the passenger(s) can wait or grumble or p*** and Moan! Awesomoe shot Stephen!

Wonderful composition. The curve of the walkway pulls me right onto the bridge & into Sausalito in the distance.

I like the way the lines of the walkway and bridge lead my eye in a circle around the bay. This is a fresh point of view of this icon.

And it pays off when the photographer has his eyes open, ready for the opportunity.
