Even before we moved up to the San Francisco bay area we loved visiting here and considered the Golden Gate Bridge one of our home state's key landmarks.
I don't think we will be making it up there today, but I look forward to our next visit. It has been too long since we stayed a while and photographed it.
One of the last times we were there with serious intent to photograph I rented a Hassleblad Xpan for the weekend from Keeble & Shuchat in Palo Alto. I took a number of photos of the bridge around sunset from the overlook at Battery Spencer.
The sunset itself wasn't too spectacular, but nearly half an hour later I was able to get the above shot. The subtle blue of the sky along with vibrant city and car lights made it my favorite from the night.
The XPan was a very fun camera to shoot. I wouldn't mind coming upon one some time on the used market…
