California - Golden Gate Bridge - patricksmithphotography

The thick fog surrounding the bridge alternated from being a thick soup to a emerging as a golden veil as it swirled around on this morning. Fog often can produce some excellent atmospheric effects, though it does not always cooperate.  Three foghorns echoed against the hills as ships passed by.   The fog allowed parts of the bridge to be hidden so others could be emphasized.  It is usually necessary to wait quite a long while in order for the most interesting parts to be visible, as if a painter were composing the image.  The wait often pays off but even if it doesn’t, this is a great place to be.  I pay close attention to the local weather conditions before I go here, but it is rare that I see conditions align themselves in a way that can produce a really good photograph.
