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!)
