Title from a certain Chris Isaak song… I haven’t been taking a lot of photos whilst enjoying my stay in San Francisco but this little visit to a certain bridge we all know, made the fact that I hadn’t been out not matter to me at all, I absolutely loved this spot and I can’t wait to come back to this great city and explore it a little bit more…

Without a doubt this is already one of my favourite photos out of the many thousands I have taken over the past 18 months or so, thanks for looking :D


  1. Canon 40D, 10-22mm IS. FL: 13mm
  2. 0.25 of a second @ f14, ISO 100
  3. Cokin ND8 Graduated and Polarising Filters
  4. Adobe Lightroom 2 & Adobe Photoshop CS4

Photography for me is an outlet, a way I can express myself through images rather than words. I look at the subjects I shoot from every possible angle that I can imagine and with the right light, the vision in my head becomes a reality. My passion for it began after high school and over the past several years it has become my release, my way of seeing from a different perspective..

    Great shot of a world icon Alistair, looks like it wasnt a bad sunset either.

  • Thanks Garth, it was magical luckily a few little bits of fog drifted in and got lit up by the setting sun I was worried there wouldn’t be any detail in the sky but was rewarded quite nicely :) appreciate the comment

    Oeh Yeh, fantastic shot, great exposure and lighting control! The colors are truly fantastic, very nice how you’ve combined a polarized filter with a ND8 Grad. Great composition, the bridge is truly adding so much DOF and the rock in the foreground is amazingly filled with detail. Feels like I’m on that small beach! Instant favorite!! Very well done.

  • Thanks mate, was tricky with the filters polarizing worked well coz i was almost perpendicular to the sun and the ND8 I had to tilt to the left a bit to line up with the bridge. I find live view helps to line it up with my camera I’ve found myself using it more and more lately.. Thanks for the comment mate
