Once again, I was fortunate to venture out in time to catch a beautiful sunrise. As you saw earlier in the week – this time it was atop the Marin Headlands on the north side of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. The shot above was snapped before the sun rose over the horizon line – and the street lights were still lit on the bridge. It gives the rich red colors of the bridge an eerie and almost ominous glow.
Contrasting against the strong darker colors of the early dawn light, the shot below was snapped once the sun reached above the horizon to the left of the bridge. The water vista is to the immediate right of the bridge shots…in an area known as the Marin Headlands. The softer pastel colors and the rolling coastal hills are such a cool contrast against the massive man made accomplishment of the bridge.
