Marin Headlands-Above the Golden Gate

Just a short post with some photos.  Margaret was taking a class in Sausalito so I tagged along and while she was in class I took a few photos.  The weather on Saturday was pretty lousy but Sunday it cleared up a little bit so I headed out to the Marin Headlands above the Golden Gate.

Cozelman Road has just reopened after being upgraded so you can drive all the way to Point Bonita without any detours.  They did a great job on the road and points along the way where you can stop and take it all in. There’s even a roundabout! Don’t see too many of those here in the US.

I went out to Fort Barry and stopped at several of the old batteries along the way.  Lots of fascinating history out there. The fort was built in 1908.  Not too old by world standards but here in California anything older than 100 years is pretty amazing.

So in this gallery there’s a photo of the Golden Gate in both color and black and white.  I’ve always been partial to B&W (probably has something to do with my color blindness) but Margaret likes color.  Which do you like? Click on a thumbnail for larger versions.

    I am a colorist who loves b&w photos. Your b&w Golden Gate photo really punches up the cloud formation and the currents in the water. Just beautiful! The steps are terrific too. Is that a color photo that looks b&w? I see red tones in it.

    Thanks Ellen. The steps are color too but I tried to add a little sepia toning. I’m not sure it works all together. I might want to tweak it a bit more. The original photo was pretty much B&W to begin with what with all the cement.
