San Francisco, California
I was up at the Marin Headlands shooting panoramic images of the twilight city skyline, when I noticed the possibility of an unusual composition. Changing to my Canon, I focussed on one pylon of the Golden Gate Bridge using it as the focal point of my image. The Transamerica pyramid was framed perfectly in the centre of a turret of the bridge, and I knew the 300mm lens would really compress the perspective of the shot. I bracketed a series of exposures and when I saw the results I was delighted. The long exposure really saturated the colours and makes the entire image glow, and the bridge is transformed into the imposing guardian of the distant city skyline. The image takes on an incredibly graphic quality, and is one of my absolute favourite San Francisco shots.
