San Francisco, aka SF, should stand for ‘so fun’ to photograph. That was lame… Sorry…
*Rocks and Steel – Golden Gate Bridge // San Francisco, California*
It’s hard to go to SF without shooting the GGB. Of course, though, I was struck with no fog. I was looking to shoot the bridge in a way that was out of the ordinary, and not having much luck. Then, I noticed a large rocky outcropping down the hill, and thought that might make an interesting juxtaposition between the bridge and the headlands.
I just wish Toby Harriman would have told me about the Poison Ivy down here before I had carelessly tramped around… Oh well, I hope I didn’t transfer any to his couch 🙂
very nice shot, but what are the shooting details? exposure, lens, iso…etc
This image was made with two exposures, one focused on the bridge at ISO 200, and the second focused on the close rocks at ISO 800 Both were taken at 16mm @ f4, 30sec. You can see exif info for any image in my gallery, here:
Wow! I don’t think I’ve ever seen this kind of composition. 10/10 for originality!
Thanks Joshua! That’s exactly what I was going for when I hiked down from Hawk Hill, the ‘standard’ view just wasn’t doing it for me 🙂
I secahred a bunch of sites and this was the best.
