Travel photo of the day
The Bay Bridge from Treasure Island
- PM91, CNN iReport producer
It was 10:30pm and I was sitting in our daughter’s home in San Francisco watching TV when she and her husband returned home from a Giants Game. She asked why I wasn’t out taking pictures. ‘There is no fog tonight’, she explained and added ‘This is very unusual.’
I packed up the camera, tripod and extra memory cards and we headed out. After shooting from Twin Peaks we headed to Treasure Island and spent nearly an hour and a half photographing nightscapes of San Francisco. As we were leaving, I saw what I thought was ‘the shot’ and asked for the car to pull over. Hurrying to get the shot while we were parked on the on ramp, I almost lost my camera when I inadvertently forgot to lock the third leg of the tripod. Fortunately I grabbed the tripod before it reached the ground. Once the tripod was locked, I took the photo of the Bay Bridge and the result is what you are looking at.
It was a wonderful evening and the rewards far out weighed the few hours of lost sleep.
