Mike Fletcher asked me about shooting the Golden Gate Bridge because he is coming up here soon.
I was shocked to find I havenâ€™t processed any photos of it, even though I drive over it on my way to hikes in the north. In fact, I only took photos of it on one day, and not the best of conditions: morning instead of evening, and in the late afternoon haze instead of a foggy day.
Still after a little work, they came out pretty well:
Here is a stitch that didnâ€™t turn out as well, but at least you can see the city in this one:
Just before this, as I walked across the bridge, I stole this vantage point from Caitlin.
When I got to the San Francisco side, I took one last stereotypical photo looking back, itâ€™s still morning but you can see the haze is already starting up.
This one was taken from Angel Island, later that day. The haze was pretty bad, but I was able to work with it a little with a lucky crop (Thanks, Caitlin):
Taken around the same time, this was an experiment in close cropping the image. I used a long lens to make the tower of Golden Gate closer to the same size as the structure of the pier.
