Windsurfers in Front of Golden Gate Bridge


San Francisco, California, USA

I managed to capture a shot of these three windsurfers passing in front of one of the Golden Gate Bridge's towers. It was a beautiful, clear day, perfect for being out on the water. These three were cruising along at a fairly good speed, heading south towards the northern shoreline of San Francisco.

There is a similar photo of a kiteboarder in front of the same tower. Here is another photo of a couple windsurfers taken the same day, one with "love" written across their sail.

The Bay Area, Northern California

The area around the San Francisco Bay, is commonly referred to as the "San Francisco Bay Area," or just the "Bay Area" for short. This includes San Francisco, San Jose, Oakland, Silicon Valley, Mountain View, Berkeley, Napa, and many other notable locations. There really is no clear definition of the Bay Area, with different people defining different boundaries. I have heard a few different definitions myself while living here.

The Golden Gate Bridge

The iconic Golden Gate Bridge is probably one of the most photographed bridges in the world. There are certainly no shortage of photos of this bridge. Doing a quick image search on Google will show you exactly what I mean. That said, I am a photographer living in the Bay Area. As such, I have a few of my own to contribute to the growing pile, and this photo is one of them.

The Golden Gate Bridge spans the entrance to the San Francisco Bay from the Pacific Ocean. The bridge connects San Francisco (southern end) and Sausalito (northern end) along the scenic California State Route 1.
