Peering at the Golden Gate

I celebrated Julian’s 10th birthday a bit early yesterday with Julian and his grandparents (they won’t be around on his actual birthday). We had a very nice dinner at Skates (for his desert, Julian had Chocolate Decadence cake with a candle). Then we walked out on the Berkeley Pier.

I exposed this image for 25 seconds so I could stop the lens down as far as possible (to f/25). My idea was to get the Golden Gate Bridge in focus at infinity, using the high depth-of-field to also maintain clarity in the pier’s wood railing.

    Beautiful photo as always. If it appropriate in this forum I would like to ask what tripod & head you use.
    Thanks

    Hi George,

    I use carbon fiber Gitzo legs (the exact model isn’t made any more, but they are light weight) along with a Kirk Enterprises BH-3 Ballhead. Very best wishes, Harold
