Painted Golden Gate

The Golden Gate Bridge has been photographed billions of times by millions of people. This is one of my favorite images of the bridge. Many people believe it to be a painting, but it's not. This was a single image I took on Baker Beach at sunset. The sun, which was behind the camera, gave the entire scene a rich warm pinkish light. A slightly longer shutter on the camera caused the breaking waves to streak, and gave the image a nice painterly effect. I have the printed on canvas, as the painterly effect really shines when using a real linen canvas to showcase the image.
