Golden Gate sunrise
Sunrise as seen from Hawk Hill, Marin County.
It was a very early and very cold Sunday morning that we had picked for this shot. During the drive over in the dark we kept looking up, worried that there would be too many clouds for a good sunrise shot. Once we stepped outside we quickly realized we were late already, so the run up the hill was everything but cold. The colors started coming up right as we set up so we made it just in time, but we hung around for a while hoping for an opening in the clouds, freezing our butts off. Here is my favorite shot from that morning, which turned out to be the first one I took.
Single shot, no HDR.
