The Golden Gate Bridge dominates the San Francisco skyline from many angles. It was interesting to compare it to the Mackinac Bridge…both are huge and imposing…Golden Gate is barely lit at night, but its red paint is impossible to miss in daylight, whereas the Mac tends to take on sky and sunbeam colors, but it’s a beacon of lights at night.
Surprised to see three inspectors walking the cables!
We were close to the tower, and the lens really pulls them up closer. Here’s a shot to give you a better sense of the scale (see the inspectors waaaay down the cable?).
We had fun watching the city “come to life” as the sun went down…with a nearly full moon already rising!
As we took that last shot, we realized there was a parade of boats in the harbor that were all decked out in Christmas lights! We rushed down into the city to the marina and caught some as they docked for the night.
