One of the most beautiful bridges in the world, the Golden Gate bridge takes on international orange for color. Its main cables have the shape of a hyperbola, while the side cables (north and south) describe parabolas. The bridge looks nothing less than magical when surrounded by fog.

Exposure: 1/180, f/7.1, 62mm, ISO-100.
Post-processing: Saturation/contrast/sharpening/curve

    That is a great shot Farras. I love the colors, the lines of the bridge and the perfect focus and framing. Going in my Fave file! That bridge is about the only thing I miss about my time in is an awesome structure.
