Share on Pinterest

In this beautiful sunrise capture, we see the Golden Gate Bridge enshrouded in fog. Interestingly, fog is so prevalent in San Francisco the weather phenomenon even has its own Wikipedia entry! The article explains in detail how the combination of Pacific Ocean moisture, prevailing winds and the large ‘coastal gap’ at the entrance to the San Francisco Bay all contribute to the San Francisco Fog.

The photo, taken by Michael Bennett, is one of the featured images in National Geographic Travel’s Your Shot: Golden Hour gallery. The gallery represents the best ‘Golden Hour’ images from the National Geographic Your Shot photo community.
