Commencement by kevinhuangphoto

Amazing morning to kick off low fog season. The fog rolling over the Golden Gate bridge during sunrise was absolutely mesmerizing. Can’t wait to see everybody’s shots! Thanks to Escaype, I was able to be prepared for one of the best low fog events I’ve ever seen.

All Critique and Feedback desired, thank you!

Escaype had predicted that a low fog event is possible in the morning. So, I told my friend to wake me up if it is confirmed and when he did call me 2 hours before sunrise, I got up instantly and headed straight to twin peaks as the fog level was a bit high for the regular shooting spot. While driving up the winding road of Twin Peaks, I went through low fog and it almost felt like until the very last minute fog will obscure the view. However, as I parked the car the view cleared and without wasting much time I set up my tripod and took a few shots. Luckily the clouds were in the right place at the right time as well and since the sun rises in the summers in the North west direction, I was able to get a decent burn as well! After 15-20 minutes of shooting the fog level rose up a notch and made it impossible to shoot further. Nevertheless it was a very productive day for me so I gladly returned after meeting many other escaype members there.

Just Another Golden Gate Bridge Photo by AronCooperman

For the last couple of months I’ve wanted to get a nice high cloud sunset from a couple of different locations around the Golden Gate Bridge…. ironically, this more classic view wasn’t one of those spots.

I was unable to get to the spot I was going for this past Sunday… because well, shoot… it seems that a tour bus broke down and blocked the road. Causing SFPD to reroute traffic, keeping me from my ideal location. Geez, I guess the cops didn’t get the memo that I was coming, right??

Well, sometimes part of photography is to make a quick adjustment and this was one of those times. The traffic reroute left me near the old battery stations that overlook the pacific just south of the Golden Gate Bridge. I walked around the area trying to fine a nice wildflower to use a foreground composition… but there was none to be found.

After trying a couple of different comps, that I wasn’t happy with. I decided to give this angle a try and and blend the last color of a beautiful burn with the start of the blue hour tones with the light trails of the cars driving over the iconic Golden Gate Bridge.
