Strange Sky Photo

Before reading further, can you guess what and where this is?
In case you can't figure it out, I won't leave you in suspense. It's the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, one of the places we visited on our vacation a couple of weeks ago - you probably haven't seen it like this before! I'm leaning out, looking straight up a support cable, which is actually four cables close together. It's my Skywatch Friday entry this week, and I'm also linking it to the Ein Stück Himmel (a piece of heaven) meme, and to the Sunday Bridges meme in a few days.

  4. Oh yes that is a spectacular scene, and maybe you're the first one to get it. Maybe it can be repeated elsewhere, when 4 cables stood like that. You always get the best!

  7. Makes me a little dizzy to even think of you leaning out like that, but what a fabulous picture (and beautiful blue sky you had, not always the case in SF!).

  17. Great shot. In this case a dull bright blue sky gets a complete other meaning as background for a fantastic composition. Composition and standpoint of your camera are awesome. Like it.
