The Bay Bridge


Alexis Birkill




It's a real achievement for me to go to San Francisco and not take a picture of the Golden Gate Bridge -- usually I end up with about three memory cards worth!

Still, this seemed like an excellent opportunity for me to get a photograph of San Francisco's other major bridge, the Bay Bridge.

I've wanted to get this photo for years, but unlike the Golden Gate Bridge, where there are multiple easily accessible viewpoints on public land, this one is a lot more tricky. The only place where you can get a shot looking along the bridge, like this, is from Treasure Island, large amounts of which (including anywhere with a good view) are owned by the US Coastguard.

As such, getting this shot involves ignoring multiple 'private property' and 'no trespassing' signs and hoping you don't meet anyone official. It's also extremely difficult to park, as all the spaces are resident parking (understandably since it's private!) The only option is a very small pull-off down the single-track road this viewpoint is on, which is only large enough for one vehicle.

Because of this, I've put off taking this shot for several trips, but I've always wanted to get it, so this time I figured I'd give it a go, despite some fog coming in from the sea. Apart from some difficulty in finding the correct road, it all went fairly well, and I parked as quietly as possible, employing my ninja skills to silently close the door.

Even when you get here, it's not particularly easy -- there's a very high fence to look over, so you need a tall tripod, and the area is quite overgrown. However, the view is most definitely worth it!
