Wordless Saturday? No? Well how about Bay Bridge at Night then…
On the way back from Napa, I decided to stop at Treasure Island for a few shots of the SF Skyline. I saw these views though the trees on my drive over to the viewing area and decided to try to grab a few shots. These are not my best work, but I was trying to shoot and look out for the authorities since I was parked in a no parking zone, and walking along a dark twisty road where and climbing over guard rails. I’ll go back one evening and try for better shots, but wanted to share these for today.
I liked the glow on the water and the different colors of the lights along the span in this shot.
Exposure: f/11 at 30s, ISO 100 – Sigma 18-50mm@38mm
I liked this one in black and white, it captures the form and lights instead of the distractions of the colors.
Exposure: f/22 at 20s, ISO 100 – Sigma 18-50mm@43mm
I wanted a long exposure of the traffic coming out ot the tunnel on the say to San Francisco. I really like the red, white, and blue colors of the lights in this. I was so worried about the cops pulling up and driving me off that I didn’t realize that the camea saw some of the lights as blue!

Nice work Jonathan. Really like the long exposure shot – it has a nice perspective and you got some great star burst effect on this shot.
I hope you are enjoying your time and doing what you love to do.
This bridge and the light effect are awesome.
I wanted to let you know that I nominated you for the Leibster blog award back in December, in case you missed it:
Oops, I made a typo, it’s the Liebster Award. Congratulations.
Thank you very much! I haven’t been shooting as much lately, been focusing on work. I did get a chance to get into the studio last weekend and to get out the weekend before that so new posts will be coming soon. Thank you again and Happy New Year!
