Twin Peaks

Twin Peaks

There is a lesson to be learned here…
When I arrived on this spot I was very excited by the view, despite the crowd and the freezing wind, I started to shoot a bit everywhere, changing my composition all the time, moving constantly my tripod, especially to frame the Golden Bridge.
After 30 minutes, I was completely frozen, my fiancée was utterly bored in the car, and we both started to be pretty hungry.
In the end, on the picture, you barely see the Golden Bridge and this part of town is rather dark compared to downtown.
The lesson to be learned here is: take your time on a location, look around and think about what you will want to show before setting your tripod, then focus on your composition.
For example, if I could go back, I’d walk down the hill to not have the road cut.
