Golden Gate Bridge Dressed in Mist


Sometimes the adjective is Majestic, sometimes simply Splendid. When I saw the Golden Gate Bridge dressed in mist on a midsummer day, the word was just ‘Gorgeous.’ Yes, midsummer. It was one mid day, in the middle of California’s summer of 2012 that I got to see the Golden Gate Bridge this way. 

We were on the way to Stinson Beach and it was already noon when we crossed the Golden Gate Strait (the strip of water that lies between San Francisco and Marin County) and I was surprised to see that the mist was still hanging around. 

Now, I'll leave you to get tipsy from the sight --

A picture through the car's sunroof. Do you see the mid day sun?

What's your word for the great Golden Gate Bridge in the mist?

    1. Hmm... yeah.:)
      Totally your-kinda-picture alle, Ikka? Yesterday we went to another place north of San Francisco and it looked amazing in the fog. On our way back later that evening, there was fog on the Golden Gate Bridge. Gosh, even in the dark, it looked heavenly with the lights on it looking all smudged.
      So, so nice to see you here. Seeing your comment made my day. :)

  7. San Francisco sure as hell looks like a place to be. Your pictures make me want to follow my aunts advice and ship myself there this instant.

    Hey D, Hope you are fine and healthy as a horse :P

    1. Isn't it, Anu? :)

      I'd seen pictures of the bridge in the mist and really thick fog also but hadn't gotten to see it like this for myself until last August. And then yesterday when I passed that way once again, it was a foggy night. That was quite a sight too ;)

      It is a breathtaking sight. I've found that for me it is just that, with or without the mist. It's a great structure.

      Thank you for coming by, Nisha. :)

    1. It's my pleasure to be sharing these pics, Mr. Ram. Isn't it one of a kind of a place? :) Oh, she lived here in the Bay Area earlier? Nice to know that. So you must have gotten to see some of the lovely sights this side has to offer. :)
