Photo of the Day

Golden Gate Bridge at night
January 19, 2011

Bay Bridge, San Francisco

This Month in Photo of the Day: Your Photos I wasn't even supposed to get this photo—I only ended up here after my original vantage point of the Golden Gate Bridge was completely fogged over. I was very glad I did make it over to the Embarcadero, though, because the Bay Bridge looked amazing! (This photo and caption were submitted to the 2010 National Geographic Photography Contest.)
