Journey of a body on this earth

Western Span of the Bay Bridge


Last night my good friend Dan Shehan and I met up at Treasure Island for some photos.  We had originally planned for sunset shots but the fog was too far into the bay to get a sunset.  Enter Plan B!  Up to the top of Treasure Island we went in hopes of capturing the western span of the Bay Bridge.

Dan and I stood in different spots and I think where I was standing was a lot windier.  It was whipping around pretty good up there…so much so that when my camera’s shutter was open to take pictures, I had made a circle with my hands around the tripod neck in case it fell over.

Here’s the first one of the group.

  4. It’s beautiful! I love all the streaking car lights. I too have stood there to making images. I’ve found when it’s was late at night there aren’t many cars crossing the bridge so the streaking lights aren’t as rich as you’ve captured.
    It’s a great view, image, and worth the trek to this spot, so worth going again, and again, and… 🙂

  5. Glad you made it back (with camera0 to tell the tale…
