Behind The Lens

This photo was taken in San Francisco Bay at the north end of Moore Road in Horseshoe Bay.
I had tried to photograph the Golden Gate from the Marin Headlands, but the fog was just too thick on this given night, so I ventured down to Horseshoe Bay, and after several relocations, arrived at this location, at approximately 11 PM.
Well, lighting is worth a lot, and this particular evening, the lit bridge cast an erie glow through the fog.
Monfroto tripod with an monfroto 120 head, Canon 5DMkII, 24-70 mm f/2.8
Being from the Bay Area, a long time ago, it has been a dream to come back and capture some of the magnificent sights of the Bay. Golden Gate, at night, with fog, what could make a better scene.
Just minor light adjustments for clarity in the fog.
In my camera bag
I always have my Canon 5DMkII ready with a Canon 24-70 f/2.8 lens. Also in the bag is a Canon 70-200 for a little more reach. I also have a remote trigger I use a lot and various filters, which I seldom use.
Capturing anything at night is a trial by error. In this case, I was trying to capture something totally different about the Golden Gate but was prevented from seeing the bridge from the Marin Headlands. I decided to stay low along the water to look up at the Bridge. Give yourself enough time at a location to go to Plan B, C, D, and maybe even Plan E if you have to, but remember what you want to capture, and work towards that angle.
