By definition the towers of the Golden Gate Bridge rising above the fog is as iconic a photo as you can take. Most of these types of photos are taken looking Southeast from the Marin Headlands at a distance of 1 – 1 1/4 miles. The photo below was captured from a distance of 4 miles, looking North towards the Marin Headlands. This extreme telephoto perspective via the Canon 800mm f/5.6 lens breathes a bit of life into a regularly photographed subject. No matter what the perspective seeing this iconic structure endure the ebb and flow of fog is eternally an awe inspiring experience.
