Moment of Zen - Doc MIles Photography & Tours

Before The Golden Gate Bridge was built, cars would line up for ten miles to get on the ferry across the Golden Gate Straights. Not much has changed in 75 years, The white and red streak of traffic at this time of day goes on for at least five to seven miles.
This is where the story come in. It was an unusually warm October evening and there were wispy clouds over the Golden Gate Bridge. I knew this whole area was fenced off for remodeling of the paths and trails, but had to get to a spot to photograph the bridge and clouds. I crawled under a fence and went to a spot, on a cliff, where I enjoyed the beautiful sunset and lights on the bridge. Alone. Quite. No one around. Peaceful and relaxing. Soon this are will re-open and every man and his dog will be here. Photographers, tourists and so many more, but tonight, it was mine alone to enjoy.
So interesting, the more pics that I saw of this bridge, the more I began thinking of the history of it and what people must have done before it was built. I know that it's one of the most famous bridges in the world, but had never been much interested, until seeing your pics! I have only visited the west coast twice in my life, never seeing this bridge. Our trip was mainly in search of nature's beauty in national parks etc. But your photography has made me see the beauty of this bridge & that region!
