Bay Bridge Skyline
San Francisco was so much fun!
This next shot involved some seriously inventive problem-solving. Also WHY ARE THERE NO CARS ON THE BAY BRIDGE ?! (There were many hundreds, they just disappear under extreme long exposures)
This was shot from Yerba Beuna, which is a tiny island in the San Francisco Bay.
The highway that takes one past this point was a winding narrow canyon road, with blind corners and nowhere to park or pull off the road.
I was on the hunt, when I saw this view out my window. I knew I had to make it happen. I drove all the way through the winding canyon road, with steep rock going up to my right and a sharp drop hundreds of feet into the ocean on my immediate left.
I drove up and down this stretch of road a few times to no avail, finding nowhere in the slightest bit safe to park. After trying several alternatives, I found a tiny drive way that could just fit the car I was renting, with large red DO NOT PARK. GOVERNMENT PROPERTY, WILL BE TOWED IMMEDIATELY.
I saw no alternative, and going home without this shot was simply not an option. I looked around me to see if anyone official was around, and seeing no one around except speeding cars flying past way too fast, I took the chance.
I jumped out of the car and started running. I had 30-40 lbs of camera gear on my back (or at least it felt like it) but I managed to keep a good speed up.
The first car that flew past me on this tiny winding narrow road, missing me by only a few feet screamed out his window "YOU'RE AN IDIOT!!"
I'd never been more aware of the truth of his statement.
