I drove up to San Francisco to photo the full moon from the Golden Gate Bridge as it came up. Well, that was the plan: but when I got to South San Francisco, the fog was blowing across 280. I figured it would be worse at the Golden Gate, so I bailed on that and drove to Twin Peaks. Looking down on the bridge, I figured I was right.
But the view back at downtown was clear with just a wisp of fog hanging out by Berkeley.
I knew the moon would be coming up too far south for me to get a shot of it over San Fran and that it would be coming up too late for many lights to still be on in buildings downtown but it was a warm – if windy – night so I stuck around. The sun set through the fog behind us as the moon rose over the Hayward Hills.
