I finally had the chance to photograph the Golden Gate Bridge during my trip to San Fran for the +Google+ Photographer’s Conference a few months back. I’d been to the area before, but never with my camera and wanted to get my own photograph of such an iconic landmark.

I ventured out to this location with +Brian Matiash, +Ricardo Lagos and +Justin Kern. Apparently we took the long (dangerous) path down the hill to this spot but found the stairs for the way back. :) This is a long exposure with my Lee Big Stopper (10-stop) ND filter and is a combination of two images combined (one for the water, and one for the sky and bridge).
