Golden Gate On Fire

The Golden Gate in San Francisco is on fire! Or it looks like it's on fire when it's surrounded by fog during a warn autumn evening, and when it's framed accordingly. It's a great metaphor of the two cities behind it, San Francisco and Oakland, so different, and both on fire for different reasons. San Francisco is the hot cultural capital of USA, smug and posh, but open and diverse. Oakland is the working horse of California, the center of attention during the days of the 99%.
This image was taken on a Sony A900 full frame camera, with a long focal length (approximately 200mm), and a long exposure of 30 seconds to smooth the mist around the base of the bridge. The red tone comes naturally from the city and the bridge lights around the Bay.
