30 Limited Edition

San Francisco, California, USA.

The Golden Gate in San Francisco is on fire! Or it looks like it's on fire when it's surrounded by fog and mist during a warm autumn evening, and it's framed accordingly. It's a wonderful metaphor of the two cities behind the bridge, San Francisco and Oakland, so different, and both on fire for different reasons. San Francisco is the hot cultural capital of USA, smug and posh, but open and diverse. Oakland is the working horse of California, also the center of attention during the days of the 99% movement.

While I was driving into the city with the idea of shooting a sunset on the bridge, a thick fog welcomed me: "Hope it stays as is until the bridge". I crossed the Golden Gate with very limited visibility, but when I drove up to the vista points, I left the fog behind me, under me, and joined a pretty consistent flock of photographers attracted by the same event.

This image was taken on a Sony A900 full frame camera, with a long focal length (approximately 200mm) with the intent of compressing the planes, and a long exposure of 30 seconds to smooth the mist around the base of the bridge. The red tone comes naturally from the city and the bridge lights around the Bay.

"All my images are created by me: Fine Art prints represent the goal of my art and craft. Each print is a labor of love and a work of art that will beautify and energize virtually any space in your home. I take extreme pride in preparing each print personally.

There is a huge difference in viewing photographs on a computer display versus seeing fine art prints in person; only the prints show the light, depth, texture, and delicate nuances of my images and the materials on which they are printed."
Your Limited Edition print is signed and numbered. Cotton gloves will be included to handle your print, along with the Certificate of Authenticity with serialized number hologram.
