@Sylvie49 capture image: The Bay Bridge is certainly a notable landmark of the City...Just not quite as "famous" as the Golden Gate. Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog.

A simply magnificent shot Mike, the colours and depth of tones is incredible.
Do you seriously have a place named Treasure Island?

14 Feb 2012 10:26am

@Curly: Yes, Treasure Island is an artificial island located in the San Francisco Bay named after the novel by Robert Louis Stevenson. It used to be owned by the US Navy but was sold to the city of San Francisco.

very unique composition...I've never seen an image of this bridge from this angle..I like it very much...also the colors are very beautiful...dark, yet soft
