From San Francisco, CA one of the top iconic photo locations in the world…the Golden Gate Bridge. What would be the top photographed well known structures in the world? Eiffel Tower, Golden Gate Bridge, Times Square? Hmmm…what else would be on the list?
I have a great give-away tomorrow on Places 2 Explore!! Come back tomorrow to check it out!!!! Have fun!
From the lovely San Francisco, CA….one of the most well known bridges in the world…the Golden Gate Bridge. I have shot this icon from all sides and directions. This shot was taken while walking up from a stroll down to Baker’s Beach. All of you that visit my blog know that I love textured shots. If the sky is boring…a texture will help! The photo above is just one texture. If you are interested…this is the standard version photo below…Have fun!
Golden 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!
