The art of transit

photo by Kevin Ash, via Flickr

My obsession with Golden Gate Bridge photos continues in today’s “art of transit” with this lovely image by Kevin Ash (check out his photography website, which focuses on aviation). I like the image because the bridge is crucial to the photo yet only occupies a small fraction of the frame — instead the viewer is given a splendid view of the bridge’s habitat.

The photo was taken with a Canon EOS 7D and exposed with a shutter speed of 3.2 seconds, f/22 aperture, 24 mm focal length and ISO of 100. Flash was not used and the image was processed in Photoshop.
