Journey of a body on this earth

In the Pink


Continuing my quest for different angles of the Golden Gate Bridge, here’s a painterly take on the bridge which I obtained by carefully climbing down a small hill where I wasn’t supposed to go. ย I’m such a rebel, lol.

I think not only can the angles of the bridge be unique, but processing helps create uniqueness as well. ย It’s why we can see so many pictures of this magnificent structure from the same angle and constantly see something new.

  1. One of my favorite times going to work was being stuck on the Golden Gate bridge as the sun was starting to rise above the fog. Incredible colors! Another was coming home and seeing sunsets like that one as I headed north on the GG bridge.

    Thanks for the memories. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Great shot. Keep them coming.

  3. Go rebel!!! Great composition ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I like your treatment of this photo. Looks like it was taken near the back of the building that was my barracks when stationed at the Presidio (1969) with the 30th Military Police Battalion. One of those two story white stucco buildings that back up to Lincoln Blvd. by the batteries. Most early mornings the area would be covered with fog and the smell of Eucalyptus. Back then the batteries were hard to see as they were mostly overgrown. The batteries on the north side of the bridge had large underground tunnels that we could drive our patrol cars in. They used to store Civil Defense items in some of them and occasionally we’d find broken locks where the hippies, allegedly :), had broken in to get food and other supplies.

  5. Such a beautiful pink sunset. Be a rebel, get the shot. Looks like you were careful and it paid off. Well done ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Wonderful, sometimes you have to be a rebal to get the one of a kind shot. Glad you did not get caught.

  7. Love the composition! rich colours and great angle : ))

  8. some how it seems less rigid (soft bridge)

  9. Beautiful Laura! ๐Ÿ˜‰ โค

  10. Fabulous shot, Laura. You be careful out there on those cliffs, you rebel. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  11. Fantastic effect, Laura. And fabulous composition and POV.

  12. What a great angle, and I like your processing!

  13. Love how you edited this image, Laura, so soft and pink with the light falling just perfectly on the bushes. Beautiful. โค

  15. I love the effect on the leaves. You are a master. I was going to say mistress but that has a bad connotation!

    • Um yeah, pass on the mistress thing. ๐Ÿ˜› Thank you! And thanks to Topaz Impression and Topaz Glow. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • I have 8 or 9 Topaz apps. But no Impression or Glow. How many do they have?

        • I’m not sure. I have adjust (don’t like that one), Clarity, Denoise (favorite), impression, glow, and simplify (don’t much like that one either).

          • I use Adjust rarely, Denoise even rarelier! I have been using Simplify, then discovered Restyle (I think that’s what it’s called). At first I would try to find something that looked good as a one click, but you really have to work with the sliders to get something to fit your vision. But they give you great starting points- even if they give you so many that it’s a bit of overkill.

          • I can’t get by without Denoise. And I love Restyle! And I agree. So many are crazy overblown.
