Shot from the south end of the Golden Gate Bridge on a cold winter day. It may not look like like it and it's kind of a paradox, The Golden Bridge is clearer on a cold winter day than it is all during the sunny summer.
During the summer the Bay Area goes through a conversion where the hot valley temperatures pull the cool are in from the ocean. As the are is pulled in it starts to warm and pulls the moisture from the ocean turning to fog.
During the winter when he temperatures are lower, typically in the 50's the inversion doesn't take affect. So when there aren't any outright storms blowing through the sky becomes crystal clear.
So on an exceptionally cold winter day, (40ish F) I was in the city and stopped by the Golden Gate Bridge. If I had to guess, I'd bet that the bridge is photographed from this same location 100's of times every day.
I would like to think that with the color saturation and the sharpness and clarity of detail would allow this image to stand out above all the others.
