"Through the Sails" ~ The goal of any photographer visiting an extremely popular travel destination is to try to find a unique perspective of landmarks. This is especially true for the iconic Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. We've all seen dramatic photos of the bridge peaking through dense fog, or with a foreground of waves blurred by a slow shutter. But how many shots have you seen with the bridge framed by a windblown sails? This wasn't a planned shot at all of course, but this composition revealed itself to me just as our catamaran tour was about to pass under the bridge. If this shot wasn't enough, I was also fortunate enough to capture "Sunset Sailboat" just minutes later.
