The Golden Gate is both a passageway for people and ships, as well as for lots of ocean fog to cool off the inland areas that can average near 40C in the summer. It is like a big air conditioner blowing from the Pacific on the right, to the bay on the left.

And just for fun, version 2 shows the total lunar eclipse! 1 hour exp. @F8 with ND grad 0.9. ISO 160 20mm wide.
(Straight from the camera for now...)

I just added a version 3 (big) since I'm always trying to get a new view. Definitely a 'shoot and run' situation!

A photo gallery in Carmel (the local artist's enclave) wants to permanently show my work, and the owner liked this picture the most, so I thought I should see what you think. His gallery is between the Edward Weston gallery and around the corner from one that was started by Ansel Adams when both men lived in Carmel.

LOL - Now if I could only also sell my prints for the US $ 100,000+ that I saw posted for one original print. It's true! (the print did look much better than this web image.) And the woman in the gallery said they sold one last month for that amount.

In the Ansel Adams gallery, I committed the faux pas of mentioning the "D' word (Digital) as a rapidly improving type of photography.

Almost got kicked out of the place!

2 minute exposure @F16 with ND grad 0.9 (RAW saturation left flat on zero)
(Don't use 2 ND grads in this situation or you get lots of duplicated reflections!)

Superb as always Patrick and looks great large and I bet it's awesome in print.

I was watching a programme on the telly the other day about the Bridge, well about the jumpers really, they seem to average about 2 jumpers a month and apparently, it's the most popular place in the world to commit suicide, wondered if you've caught any in mid flight so to speak...

LOL Rog, I can have my delusional fantasies! 'D' as in Digital. They only like 8x10 view cameras. Even 4x5's are frowned upon!

LOL Paul, fortunately I can outrun them. But their upturned noses do provide some good shade on hot days!

Tony, yes about every two weeks someone jumps. It is strange to think that people are jumping just a few miles from where I work. Usually they are depressed and if you can get to them, they are fine months or years later and could not imagine trying it again.

Thanks for your comments!

It was a rather mysterious evening Peter, then the moon came out leading to the shot I uploaded a few uploads back in my PF.

Terry, I could have done that and I do have one without the gap, but that is where a lot of light came through so I included it so people can see where the light originated.

Yes Joline, I bet he would use digital now, or at least experiment with it. I wonder what he would say about it if he were alive today?

That would be nice Mike, we will see!

Kris, it is actually two block from Clint's Hog's Breath Inn. Great food there. I've seen him walking around but not in his restaurant.

You never know Colin. That would be nice. Programming is mentally draining and photography is still challenging but more relaxing.

It could be Richard. I have only made one print and it does look good, even to 30x45.

I wish Gary!

Sorry about the fingers Nikki.

Sunset Terry. That's why it is brighter to the right as you noticed. There is so much motion over a two minute exposure that it is hard to tell sometimes.

Thanks for the kind wishes. I do hope it works out!

Well Edgar, I must admit that the SF bay area is not really the best for wildlife. Our long dry summers make it difficult for most animals.

There is a nice heard of Elk about 1 hour north of San Francisco in the Point Reyes National Park. They can be 7 feet at the shoulder!

And there are 250 species of birds here, which is almost the variety that you get in the tropics. Most are small and fast though and blend into the dry grass. But there are lots of bird photographers here so they must get something.

The real big game is about 1000 miles away NE in Wyoming, Montana, and places like that.

Fortunately that seal was sleeping!

If you have other questions, let me know.

Patrick

I put the eclipse in the mods until I can process it properly.

Good news on the gallery front Patrick, I wish you well. The main image is sublime, and I let out an expletive as I viewed number 3, (good proof that you do get bad weather).

I thought I had commented on this already but it looks like I didn't so here I go. Really nice Patrick, great colours and great light, no 3 looks like you would have gotten a little bit wet.

Another masterpiece. I just love the way the bridge disappears into the mist and the colours in the sky are beautiful.
I also like the effect of the long exposure on the moon in #2.

Holysh...this is outrageously stunning, Patrick. Vs 2 and 3 as well!!

Can prints actually sell for a 100 G's??

Back to V2...that's really something. You're probably the ONLY person with that shot, dude.

Fantastic capture. Everything works so well, lighting, fog, and the long exposure has soothed out the foreground water nicely.
Makes me want to head back to the bay area and capture a few more shots myself!
