golden gate bridge

Instead of heading straight home from work, I decided to take a 10 minute side trip to the north side of the bridge.  I enjoy being around and shooting different angles of the golden gate and seeing what kind of weather pattern presents itself.  I parked my car and wandered around looking for angles when I spied a path I’d overlooked on previous visits.  Perfect.  I didn’t even have to go too far to find something I hadn’t seen before.

Leaving work on my way out to a crowded freeway, I always pass this spot on the bay.  Across from Sausalito it looks out onto the tips of the Golden Gate Bridge and just a bit south, onto San Francisco itself.  This evening, though, the fog had settled in.  The infamous Bay Area fog, getting sucked into the Gate and the City by the warmer air inland.  Yes, it makes everything cooler, colder even, but it sure makes for a great subject matter.

Yes, this is the Golden Gate Bridge; not a view typically seen, but it is there.  Far from its iconic status it is also a mode of transportation into a very exciting city.  One evening I was tooling around, looking for angles I hadn’t seen before.  I parked my car in the parking lot just on the north side of the bridge before sunset and walked around on the trails.  Though not filled with the more famous views, the fact that the sun was shining its last light on the city and the clouds were starting to turn color made for a different and serendipitous view.

What a great place to walk!  In the hills above Tiburon, California in Marin county is a large open space with trails and 360 degree views that won’t quit.  Depending on where you walk, there’s a different vantage point; of the golden gate, San Francisco, the east bay.  It’s city planning at its best as it could easily be covered with large, estate homes.  But we need great places to walk or take photos!  Thank you Marin county.

It was so nice here in the Bay area last week.  I can look out my office window over San Francisco Bay to the city and keep an eye on the weather.  The light in winter is so much softer than other times of year.  So, I took off around 4:00 and headed over the Richmond bridge to the east bay, then across the Bay bridge and got off on Treasure Island, that perfect little piece of land just in front of San Francisco.  Not many people milling around.  Good.  I was mostly focusing on the City when the light of and over Alcatraz caught my eye.  A gorgeous night of light and color.  Perfect for a prison break.

I was tired.  I’d just flown back into Oakland from Austin after the birth of my granddaughter.  I really just wanted to go home which was still an hour and a half away.  But, there it was; an incredible light and storm over San Francisco.  I couldn’t just go home.  So, I got onto the bay bridge and got off on Treasure Island;  a perfect place to watch/experience the unfolding dance of nature and architecture.  Sure glad I didn’t go right home.

We were heading back to the office north of the bridge a few weeks ago when luck would have it that a large air craft carrier was making its way out of the bay.  I wonder what it was doing?  In town for a show?  Was there a threat that the public didn’t know about?  Maybe making its way to sea for some war games.  Or simply heading back to San Diego to sit in the harbor and be “ready”.  Whatever it was it was a sight not often seen here.  I’m just glad it was all show.
