Marshall’s Beach, San Francisco

With my mom living in Daly City, I usually make several trips a year to the Bay Area. When I do, I always intend to bring my camera and try to make at least one cool picture I can be proud of. When Donna comes along, my mom and her are usually pretty good sports as they sit in the car and read while I work on my art. I’ve wanted to make a picture of the Golden Gate Bridge at Marshall’s Beach for a while and figured this last trip would be my chance.

Of the four days we were there, there was only one day where the fog didn’t roll in during the evening. Luckily, we timed it right. What I didn’t know, was how long a hike it is from the parking lot to the beach. It’s probably just a mile or two, but it’s pretty steep and rugged. Coming back in the dark was a little tricky.

But in the end, I got the shot I was hoping for. Good enough to not have to try it again anyway.
