Golden Gate Bridge

The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge built in 1933-37 that links San Francisco with Marin County to the north, costing in excess of $35m at the time. It is an instantly recognised structure around the world and as I was in the area it was on the list of things to photograph, luckily the weather held and the mist rose to reveal the bridge in its glory. I took shots from both the eastern and western sides of the bridge and also tried to capture the flow of traffic by shooting straight through the towers in a less conventional manner. The bridge has been declared one of the Wonders of the Modern World by the American Society of Civil Engineers and it’s fairly easy to understand why.
