My first attempt at the Golden Gate bridge.
Unfortunately it’s problematic. My writeup goes into a bit more detail and I’ll talk about my experiences in taking this picture. I was very surprised by some of the difficulties I had… It’s often the things you least expect that come to trouble you.
The Golden Gate’s a difficult photo to take in many ways. The bay’s always covered by a layer of fog and haze and that obscures the beauty of the bridge itself. I’ve seen some exceptional photographs of the bridge and when I see them I always wonder: “What did they have to do to get the photo looking like that?”
Maybe someday I’ll find out…
Meanwhile, I also have problems putting up a larger picture so I’d really recommend viewing the least resized version.
