These two views from the San Francisco Bay Bridge and the frontage road to Berkeley California were recorded while riding across the San Francisco Bay Bridge in a van, in June. The first group of photos are intriguing as they capture the birds in flight with the prominent view of the bay and Mount Tamalpais in Marin County. You will note that glimpses of the bridge girders are visible in a couple of photos to give it some perspective. Also the flickers were a result of shooting between the girders at a speed of around 60 mph. The shift in focus is caused by the van jolting at points on the road.
As the view turns parallel toward the eastern sky the sun is directly hitting the lens, the camera lens did not compensate for the intense light. The second group’s images are overexposed, but I like the effect. Sunset is an ethereal time, these untouched images reflect the light change in a way that adds a bit of mystery and wonder for me.
What do you think?
Thanks for stopping by my kitchen.
Have a peaceful day, wherever you are.
