  1. I LOVE your shot; how on earth did you ever get that angle at the Golden Gate? Wonderful image!

    • Thanks so much, Mitch. I wandered into Fort Point which is under the bridge one afternoon and the shadows that were cast by the underside of the bridge were fantastic. I am definitely going back. Glad you like this!

  2. Wow, gorgeous captures Jane. I found your post because one of your images was featured on the Daily Post – Photos We Love. Well deserved recognition. You have quite an artistic gift.

  3. Fantastic B&W series of the bridge.

  4. I believe this to be the most beautiful bridge in the world, and you have done it great justice with these photographs 🙂 Wonderful work Jane, bringing the angles of the bridge to life.

  5. I’ve always loved the quote by Dorothea Lange, it’s so accurate. Great series, particular the last one really caught my eye.

  6. I find these photos to be very calming …I just love the B&W….GREAT stuff!!!

  7. Great quotes and photos. If I were still teaching I’d share with my students ( with your permission) .

  8. Jane, these are great photos and you made such good use of your POV. They remind me of the feeling that I had my first week as an employee at the GGB. I was more impressed when I climbed over the rail and went underneath the bridge than when I climbed the cable to the top of the tower. It is a sensation similar to flying: What is holding this big thing up in the air?

    BTW, Ft Point also looks good in your photos.

    • Hi Allan, I cannot imagine the incredible viewpoints of the bridge you have seen! What an exciting story. Just the words climbing over the rail… or top of the tower…amazing. Makes me happy that you found this series interesting. Thank you so much for sharing and for your appreciation–nice that it brings back memories.

  9. Inspiring words from an inspiring photographer. Cheers Jane :-))

  10. i love the BNW and shadow play here! Great captures!

  11. Stunning photos of the Golden Gate Bridge, Jane. I love the last photo the best. Beautiful cloud cover yet the bridge still stands out, and I supposed the black and white composition added to this. The hoodoos look interesting. For a moment I thought they were animals or tiny people looking out into the river. Cute 🙂

  12. Fabulous shots of the “Bridge!”

  13. That first shot is just magical when the eye follows the shadow right up to the shoreline and the bridge.

  14. The sky has no limit for your elegant images!

  15. I love the shadows and the use of negative space in the first shot Jane!

  16. Beautiful play of light and shadow on the water, Jane! -Jesse

  17. I think you are like a monkey climbing all around to get your amazing angles!!!

  18. Very striking! Although the color of the bridge is iconic the black and white is a great touch

  19. A beautiful record of your living Jane!

  20. Beautiful assortment of views. The angles- as everyone says- are the key!

  21. Love the hoodoos (never knew they were called that) with the bridge. Good to see it from all your different perspectives.

  22. Impressive – excellent captured… 🙂

    Wonderful to see the bridge in nem angles… 🙂

  23. Golden Gate never ceases to charm.

  24. Jane, your angles are perfect! Are you taking these photos at the very end of Crissey Fields? Great photography!
