The Place Where Romance Starts

Uploaded: September 29, 2007 18:20:06


Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, is often the place where romance starts. Especially when low clouds float around the red lights at the top of the bridge, the most beautiful and romantic scene could appear around dusk and bring inspiration to photographers. With the effects of long exposure, the clouds and ocean became soft and even.
