San Francisco, CA – Golden Gate Bridge (HDR)

Add an ImageGolden Gate Bridge at Sunset is a wonderful sight!  This was from earlier this year while shooting with my buddy Horace Kwan.  We arrived at the Horseshoe Bay before sunset and took a bunch of shots this day.    This location is on a little jetty that overlooks the bridge wonderfully!!  Best spots to photograph the bridge:

1) Fort Point

2) Baker’s Beach

3) Battery Spencer

4) Horseshoe Bay

5) Vista Point

All locations will get you great shots!  If you can, try em all!!   On Baker’s beach watch out for the nudists during the summer!!   Go early or late so you won’t get a “full moon or moons” overlooking the bridge!  LOL  have fun!

  1. I prefer to leave comments here instead of on facebook. Another wonderful shot from my favorite bridge. It never gets old, does it? Great work, yet again, Pete.

    Great picture! And since we’re members of the Presidio Yacht Club, I knew the exact location for this photo. Is it available yet as an iPad desktop photo?

  3. Simply WOW! You’ve created something new from a classic scene. The water really goes surreal with all those exposures mixed together.
