Bay Area Lights

This is a long exposure of the San Francisco Bay Bridge I took last year. I with about three hundred other people on a Trey Ratcliff photowalk. The problem with me a photowalks is that I'm a straggler. I see so many things that I want to take pictures of that I end up at the back of the pack, I can't seem to help myself.

This is just one of many thirty-second exposures I did while standing here with my tripod. If you do the math, that puts me in this spot for about ten minutes. By the time I have enough presence of mind to look up from my camera the end of the pack is hundreds of yards down the road. Time to run.

Now many months later did I just go back to look at this and remember that fun evening. I met so many people and had a blast. But also I just noticed the V-shaped light in the distance between the two leading lines. How crazy is that? I don't recall seeing it that night. Anyway, now this is one of my favorite shots from that evening.
