The Bay Bridge
My third and final stop on my night photography tour of San Francisco was at the Bay Bridge. The cab ride from the Marina District to the Bay Bridge was pretty reasonable and much quicker than trying to take public transportation, which was non existant at 10:00 on a Sunday evening. The entire fares and tips were less than $40.00 for the three legs of my journey. Without the cabs, my night photography tour would not have happened.
The Bay Bridge, while lesser known than the Golden Gate, is equally as beautiful as its more famous neighbor. Glowing bright lights outline the suspension cables of the double decker bridge. Leading from San Francisco to Oakland, the Bay Bridge makes its first connection at Angel Island. When I first saw the bridge illuminated at night, I was awestruck. It was amazingly beautiful!
With Bay area fog socked in, the lights of San Francisco and Oakland reflected off of the fog to provide a beautiful hue to light the sky. After nearly an hour of photographing the bridge and San Francisco, I headed back to the hotel, very satisfied with a great photographic adventure.
