I guess it takes real dedication to wait out the fog that seems to always cover San Francisco’s famous Golden Gate Bridge. But this photographer claims to have achieved the feat and has produced some striking images to prove it.
Of course, the fog is not completely gone — it never is — but it has uncovered enough of the bridge to allow this very patient photographer to take these fascinating images. The photographer in question is 27-year-old Stefan Forster from Switzerland who says:
For five months of the year I travel the world on the hunt for the perfect image. These pictures were taken about one hour after a truly amazing sunset, during a five day stay in San Francisco. I drove up to the bridge viewpoint about four times a day hoping for the ultimate shot.
My main aim was to take a photograph of the bridge coming out of fog and I was lucky — on the last of this five days I saw the bridge appearing out of the mist and I grabbed my camera to take these shots.
And he did an amazing job at it. Enjoy. (Scroll down for a video of Stefan Forster’s work.)
