A bit of a throwback photograph here from 2014. The location is Battery Spencer in the Marin Headlands. It does not matter if you are a tourist, a photographer, or anything in between. If you are here, you are taking this photo.
As has been that case with every one of my attempts to capture the fog rolling into the San Francisco Bay, there was no fog. EVERY. TIME. I check the fog maps online to make sure there will be fog. What happens? No fog.
Another previous blog entry of the Golden Gate bridge were also shot on the same trip:
I have this little idiosyncrasy to admit to when the composition lends itself to a possible panorama treatment and I have not taken multiple shots to create a pano. I crop the image to a 16×9 ratio. Granted not having multiple images to create a pano results in lower resolution “pano” and the photograph will not be very crisp if printed to a large size. Yet at 16×9 we get a slightly elongated horizontal dimension that suits a subject like the Golden Gate Bridge well.
