Fog entering San Francisco Bay at Golden Gate bridge

July 8th, 2012 No comments

Often when returning from Asia, I will look out the window as the airplane descends into San Francisco. Invariably, I will see fogs entering the San Francisco Bay, some times completely engulfing the Golden Gate bridge. I have always wanted to make a time-lapsed video, so decided the fogs over the bridge would be a perfect subject. So, here it is, shot with my Canon 5D Mark 2 using the 16-35mm F/2.8L II lens. It was a beautiful day yesterday. Footage was taken from Hawk Hill, a vista point north-west to the bridge. Music is courtesy of Yoyo Ma, performing Bach’s cello suite #1’s, “Prelude.” Make sure to view it full screen at 1080p!

San Francisco and Golden Gate Bridge

I had an opportunity to visit the Sausalito vista point at the Golden Gate Bridge couple of days ago. More than anything, I was hoping to capture an image of a giant COSCO container ship as it enters the bay beneath the bridge. No such luck. Below are couple of landscapes taken under harsh early afternoon sun. San Francisco has 170k+ Chinese Americans, and percentage-wise, they comprise 21% of the make-up, the highest of all U.S. cities with significant Chinese population.
