Ed’s Sunday Stills: Night Shots

More shots of the Golden Gate Bridge for my San Francisco collection from my October photography tour of this amazing city. While I managed to get some star effects, I would have gotten more had I closed down my aperture. F/16 is usually a good bet.

  1. I must tell you….I’ve had a crazy travel weekend and keep trying to find time to comment on these awesome pictures. I could look at them all day. Each one has something unique yet they are all the same. I love the coloring and the city in the background adds a different dimension. amazing!


    • Thanks for that, Jeremy! I’ve seen some spectacular shots of the foggy bridge and was actually hoping to have that happen. It did, but I wasn’t at a place to capture it at all well when it happened. But the whole bridge literally disappeared! Amazing.

  2. Wow wow wow. Stacy you know how I love my bridges, that’s how we met. I actually made a noise when I saw these pictures just now. I want to go there with you and see how you do this. Just breathtaking.
