The Golden Gate Bridge

Although certainly one of the most photographed bridges in the world, I wanted to have my own images of this incredible structure. There are many vantage points, but as we are here only a limited time, I'm not trying to get photos from each one . . . this time. But I am trying to take photos that will be distinctive . . . not like everyone else's. This first photo is really a combination of shots, one to get the sunset colors in the clouds and the other to capture the city lights and the bridge lights.

The city lights put a glow on the clouds after the sunlight is totally gone - it also took a combination of exposures to capture the clouds illuminated from the lights and to get the city lights properly exposed as well.
