Transport and transit travel photo competition winner - Golden Gate Bridge by Paul Thompson

Paul had this story to share about his prize-winning shot. Earlier that same day, I was shooting photos at Lombard Street (the famous curvy one) and my rented car was broken into. The thieves made off with with my backpack which included a very expensive camera lens and my tripod. Being the intrepid traveler that I am, I did not let that event keep me from getting my dream shot.

I drove over the bridge and parked down by the water at an old military training base. Because I didn’t have my tripod, I balanced my camera on top of one of those big wooden bulkheads. I used a remote shutter release to keep the camera from shaking, and kept the shutter open on a 30-second timer. The long exposure is what made it possible to catch the wisps of fog descending over the bridge. You can find more of Paul’s photos on Flickr.
