The Golden Gate Bridge has been photographed billions of times by millions of people. This is one of my favorite images of the bridge. Many people believe it to be a painting, but it's not. This was a single image I took on Baker Beach at sunset. The sun, which was behind the camera, gave the entire scene a rich warm pinkish light. A slightly longer shutter on the camera caused the breaking waves to streak, and gave the image a nice painterly effect. I have the printed on canvas, as the painterly effect really shines when using a real linen canvas to showcase the image.
