Golden Gate National Recreational Area
Marin County, CA
This was one of those nights where many photographers lined the road leading to Hawk Hill, because this was one of those nights that a full moon rose above the eastern horizon just after sunset. It is a great spot to get a moonrise photograph over the Bay Bridge and the East Bay. I was there to try this myself for the first time. But as the night went on, and the moon got to be quite high in the sky, I kept making pictures of the bridge and the city, and this one ended up being my favorite. I love studying the details of the city and the waterfront along the bay in this image.
