Golden Gate Haze

Golden Gate Haze, originally uploaded by Della Huff Photography.

Happy Birthday to the most beautiful bridge on the planet, still inspiring the world at 75 years old. I hope everyone in the Bay Area gets out to celebrate this great lady's 75th this weekend. You can check out all of the events at

One thing I love about this image is that you can barely see anything man-made aside from the Bridge. We in the Bay Area are all so fortunate to benefit from the preservation of open space made possible by the Golden Gate National Parks, the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, the Presidio Trust, and many other organizations that make this possible.

I have been honored to support the Bridge's birthday by supplying photography for the 75th Anniversary advertising campaign as well as for new products at the new Bridge Pavilion and Visitor's Center. If you check it out, look for my posters, matted prints, postcards, and more. A book of my images, Golden Gate Inspirations, will be arriving shortly. Not only are the products beautiful, wonderfully made, and affordable, all purchases also benefit the Golden Gate National Parks.

For more Golden Gate inspiration, check out this short documentary about Ted Huggins, a Standard Oil (now Chevron) employee who documented the building of the Golden Gate. It contains some outstanding photos and historical video footage. Very inspiring.
