Kinda surreal!
Hard to believe that 25 years ago while visiting the area, I ran across that bridge!

Love this shot! Makes me nostalgic §:-(

Been there 2 yrs ago and the bridge fascinates me.

Cool shot!

Thanks, y'all!

I'm fortunate enough to live about a mile and a half from here, so of course I end up with a ton of Golden Gate Bridge shots. (Cue Gang of 4: "at home he feels like a tourist...") My goal with this was just to get a decent night shot of the bridge, but when I saw the shadow cast by the statue I couldn't resist putting it in.

Kind of dark and brooding. Makes me think of Jack the Ripper! Oh, oh, overactive imagination! Great shot! Love the bridge contrast between the shadow and the lit up bridge in the background.

The light on the bridge disappearing into a ceiling of fog is spectacular!

Beautiful photo! I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like it!

Catherine said...

Great shot...love the menacing feel of the shadow...which presumably is a stone statue??
