Mineral Grey X1 at the Golden Gate Bridge

So I went out early last Saturday to catch some good light on the east side of the bridge.

I forgot about the farmers market at the Ferry Building, and got stock in traffic for a bit, but some Clutch playing on the HK kept me sane

I was soon at Fort Point and there was a bit of fog that lent some drama to the pics

The parking spots there are at a weird angle, so I headed across the bridge to Fort Baker on the Marin County side.

Thankfully at that time of day, it was still pretty deserted

Toward the city, there was kind of a cool layer of fog still

All in all, a nice way to spend a Saturday Morning.
Here is a gratuitous bridge shot from the Vista Point on the north end, where I stopped with all the tourists

Gorgeous. My mineral grey x1 has been at the port of exit awaiting a ship for a week now, so I'm living vicariously through your pics

Reminds me of the guy who asked Shakespeare what kind of pen he used.

Thanks guys! I am indeed having a lot of fun. I used to take tons of pics of my GTI too. It's fun to make a day of driving around to find cool photo locations to shoot a car at. I was out at Tomales Bay and got a bunch too, that I will get around to posting eventually. This car is a very nice replacement for my already very nice VW. I only need a couple hundred more to finish the break in miles!

The bridge shots were taken with 2 cameras, a Canon 5D2 with the 70-200 f2.8L and a Canon 1D4 with the 16-25 2.8L. I may have swapped the lenses around too, I don't remember.

Terrific pictures. Some of these look like they could be used by BMW marketing. They also make me miss living in San Francisco! Keep them coming and enjoy your car!

Very nice pics. Were these all handheld shots? Any post-processing (photoshop) ?

All handheld, and since I only shoot in RAW, yes they are processed. Mostly in Lightroom, but with some final contrast and sharpening tweaks in CS6.
