    Have a nice Sunday

  6. Haha – I remember the shot your husband took of you in the middle of surf, trying to protect your camera! You sure go to great lengths to get the shot!!

  7. I’ve been near that spot. Now I need a towel after looking at your photo. Nice capture!

  8. Wonderful photo Jane and terrific in b/w!

  9. Amazing creativity and spectacular composition. Thanks for allowing us to see things in a completely new way!

  10. Fabulous! Did you have to stand and shoot forever? I hate that moment when you’ve just ‘missed it’. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  11. That is an amazing capture of a fleeting moment and looks fantastic in b&w

  12. Wow, this is great! I think in black and white it has even more atmosphere!

  13. Fantastic how many completely different photo’s you have of the bridge… this is a splashing spectacular one and great in black and white!

    • Hi Noortje, It’s great how many moods there are of the GG and I love capturing them The winter is great for this kind of wave action. So glad you like it in black and white. Thank you!

  14. I believe I stood in that spot when we visited San Francisco in October of 2016. The water then was calm. How often does it get as turbulent as you recorded it in your picture?

    • Hi Steve, I’m sure you did if you toured around the bridge. This is on the road to Fort Point which is at the base of the GG near Crissy Field. The winter brings huge swells and great wave action along the coast. I’ve seen waves crash all the way across the road surprising and soaking unsuspecting tourists. It’s also the a coveted place for surfers. Glad this brought back good memories.

  15. Great shot, Jane. Brilliant!!

  16. that’s a great shot! πŸ™‚

  17. Hope you didn’t get wet! πŸ˜‰

  18. The bridge looks even more elegant than usual, totally unperturbed by the chaotic surf. very cool shot!
