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.

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.
