Magical Fog in San Francisco over the Golden Gate Bridge

See you in San Francisco Soon

I JUST left San Francisco, but now I am coming back into town! I’ll be there in the middle of May for the Google+ Photographer’s Conference. Note that I am not personally putting on this conference… I’m just showing up. I’ll be in a few panels, leading a photowalk, and showing up for something they have ridiculously called “An Evening with Trey Ratcliff.”

Daily Photo – Magical Fog in San Francisco over the Golden Gate Bridge

I recently drove across the bridge and up this little mountain road to try to find this shot. I started driving up a road I knew well, but it was closed. Closed! So I parked, got out my tripod, and hiked about a mile up this hill to get to this spot. It was a very cool night, but there was some strange inversion happening. Almost anywhere I stood on the side of the hill was a steady hotel-room 72-degrees. And there was zero wind. It was a perfect night, and just when I arrived, the fog really started pouring over the bridge, so I set up for this shot…

    A nice time to be taking shots of the  city here in Perth thats no to crash hot. I see they have given the 800E a good write up on The Luminous Landscape blog. Sounds a good buy will canon lenses fit ?

    Awesome shot Trey! I don’t think I’ve ever been in the Bay area with out some sort of wind. What a cool night that was for shooting the bridge. That fog almost looks ghostly.

    I was checking the exif data as to what lense it was taken with because I really like the sharpness..and surprise: the Nikon 28-300 which many people described a toy! Well, is that’s the kind of quality that you can get with toys, I’ll be happy to play!

    Just stumbled onto your site a month or so ago and really love your photos. I was in San Franciso a few years ago and took some pictures of the bridge but they look nothing like this. Makes me want to go back and see what other shots I could get.

    Trey — Checkout the sunset shot back at the city from Treasure Island.   There’s an exit off the Bay Bridge that will take you there.  You will love it.
