Golden Gate Bridge over which connects San Francisco with Pacific ocean is one of the main places to explore in San Francisco. I was there in 2013 and some of the office friends planned a full day Photo Walk around San Francisco. During this Photo-Walk we crossed this bridge many times and went around various places which offer some of the amazing views of the bridge. This Photo Journey shares some of the photographs clicked during this Photo-Walk.
The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge links the U.S. city of San Francisco, on the northern tip of the San Francisco Peninsula , to Marin County , bridging both U.S. Route 101 and California State Route 1 across the strait.
Golden Gate Bridge is one the seven wonders of the modern world. This magnificent bridge, perhaps San Francisco's most famous landmark which was opened in 1937 after a four-year struggle against relentless winds, fog, rock and treacherous tides.
Golden Gate bridge is one of the most internationally recognized symbols of San Francisco, California, and the United States. It has also been declared one of the Wonders of the Modern World by the American Society of Civil Engineers.
We drove to a neighboring hill and enjoyed some of the brilliant views of Golden Gate Bride, Pacific Ocean and an Francisco city. Battery Spencer, Marin County.
One need to cross the bridge from the San Francisco side to the Marin County side to Battery Spencer, a former military installation that protected the bridge and the bay from foreign invaders during World War II. Head through the historic army artifacts and crumbling buildings to land’s end where you’ll be able to pose in your very own snapshot of the bridge with the breathtaking background of the entire city of San Francisco behind you.

One of the largest urban parks in the world, Golden Gate Park stretches for three miles on the western edge of San Francisco. It's huge and approximately 1000+ acres, which sounds unbelievable.
Golden Gate Bridge is 1.7 miles from San Francisco to the Marin headlands. The sidewalks on Golden Gate Bridge are open during the day to pedestrians including wheelchair users and bicyclists. When I was there, I saw huge groups of cyclists enjoying their ride on Golden Gate Bridge.
Fort point is another god place to click Golden Gate Bridge. This is a place which exposes you to brilliant architecture of Golden Gate Bridge. This is another former military installation which allows everyone to feel the mist from the bay waves crashing ashore while being directly underneath the bridge. Getting here from Fisherman’s Wharf and Pier 39 is brisk walk and bike ride through the scenic Marina District and into the Presidio along the water’s edge. There’s parking here too, free of charge, but it can be in short supply during peak visiting hours.
During the visit we went to the base of Golden Gate Bridge, where lot of surfers were enjoying the pacific waves.
We spent some time around the shore and watched these surfers playing with water waves in chilling weather. We were carrying some snacks with us, so thought of having some around the ocean.
If you are holding a camera I am sure that you would not want to get away from these beautiful locations which give different view/perspective of Golden Gate Bridge.
This is a photograph of huge iron chains installed around the shoreline near Fort point. I clicked lot of photographs of these and would share a separate Photo Journey on that.
In few weeks I will be there again and hope to bring back more beautiful memories for you all.
