Hey everyone. I’m heading out to San Francisco today for an Adobe event. It’s not really a shooting event and I’m not sure how much time I’ll have, but the Bay area is one of my favorite places so I packed up my camera gear with me as well. Just searching around 500px.com (which is what I do whenever I go on a trip somewhere for inspiration and cool places to shoot), I found a ton of great long exposure possibilities so I’ve got my ND filters too. But, if anyone reading knows so good photo spots, by all means please let me know. I’ve always wanted to get a photo of the top of the Golden Gate poking through the fog, but I’m not even sure if this is a good time of year for that. All I know is that any time I go to shoot it, it’s totally engulfed in fog ;-)

Anyway, here’s a couple of photos I took on my last trip out there. I went to one of the popular beach areas (Baker beach, and no I didn’t see any nude beachgoers ;) ) to photograph the Golden Gate Bridge at sunset.

But as it got closer to sunset, some hazy stuff started to roll in and covered the bridge. So I switched gears,

ran up to the rocks you see in the distance here, and did some longer exposures there. This is one of my favorites.

Again, if you know of any great spots, please drop me a comment here and let me know. Have a good one!
