“This shot was taken at sunrise on January 21, 2011. There aren’t too many days in San Francisco when the fog doesn’t totally eclipse the Golden Gate Bridge and the surrounding areas. However, if you find yourself here on a fogless day, it’s the most beautiful city anywhere. The previous few days looked a lot like this and I kept telling myself that I needed to get up in the dark, drive to the Marin Headlands, and shoot the bridge before the fog came back.
“So, on this particularly cold January morning, I did just that. I got there about 30 minutes before the sunrise and there were already four other photographers there (and here I was being proud of myself, thinking I’d be the early bird). I shot from a few different angles until I found this one. What I like most about this photo is that everything is there. The bridge, Coit Tower in between the two bridge posts, the silhouette of the Transamerica Pyramid on the left, and the sun just peaking over crest of the horizon on the far left. I used five frames to make this composite with a little bit of post production. Overall though, the look and colors are as I remember them. A beautiful start to a new year.” — Josh
