Superb image. Just curious, I was in San Francisco several years ago (before taking up photography seriously again); what was your vantage point for this shot? Looks like you were elevated above the normal ground level.

Hi Dubes,
Thanks for the comment. This shot was taken from the Marin Headlands, which is the name for the hills on the north end of the Golden Gate. If you're traveling north on Hwy. 101 over the bridge, out of San Francisco, take the 2nd exit past the bridge, and follow the signs to get right back on 101 south. Look for a right turn just before entering the highway, and that will take you up into the hills and get you very close to the north tower. That road has several classic overlooks for the bridge, and if it's not foggy, the city skyline as well.

An absolutely stunning photo that is worthy of gracing the front page of any photography magazine!

Larry,


Brings back a lot of memories. I used to live at Ft. Baker (Caballo Pt.) in the 60's. I have been up to to the gun turrets at the top of Marin headlands a few times on trips up north, but have never gotten close to a shot like this. Beautiful.
