Marin Headlands

 

Golden Gate

Weekend before last, Nick asked if I was interested in going to take some pictures (He just got a new canon 7d) I said sure and since he was also getting a lens from someone in the bay area we decided to head to San Francisco. Nick wanted to shoot some pictures of the Golden Gate and since I’d always wanted to walk out to the light house on the North point we agreed to visit the Marin headlands, then head into the city for a few night shots.

We got a bit of a late start and then had to wait a bit to pick up the lens but we still had plenty of beautiful daylight left when we got to the Marin headlands.  I even managed to get some wildlife shots as there were deer, several small birds and a hawk. I approached the hawk stealthily only to spot a little girl standing directly under it!I then proceeded to walk up to it for some close ups.

We finally headed out to the lighthouse only to find we had just made it in time. They were closing up for the day and wouldn’t be allowing more people out across the bridge. We got several pictures then headed into the city for some dinner at fishermans warf and then some night time photography.

First off we enjoyed the sunset during dinner, We were dissapointed to see the minimal lighting on the Golden gate so instead we took pictures of the bay bridge.
