Golden Gate Bridge in the Fog

San Francisco and fog are almost synonyms, at least during summer. Spring and fall are the sunny seasons with little fog. We just had some gorgeous spring days and then the fogged rolled in again. Having some fog in the picture is always better than having just a clear blue sky. So I ventured out early evening thinking that we might get a nice sunset.

I love how the fog covers half the bridge. The bridge is painted with a color named International Orange.  According to Wikipedia, this is a color chosen to set things apart from their surroundings. This works very well with the fog.

The scenery changed completely once the daylight started to fade and the bridge lights were turned on. It even looked like the fog started to disappear. But it was just for a short moment. The big light in front of Fort Point is a construction light. The Golden Gate Bridge’s 75 year anniversary is coming up and they try to get everything ready for the big celebration.

I am always on the lookout for a different perspective of well known objects. This is a spot I visited before and I was hoping for an interesting image. Unfortunately, the fog now was a bit too dense and obstructed the view of the towers.
