Thanks everyone for voting on my picture. I am honored!!

For people that live in the San Francisco Bay Area, a view of the Bay Bridge is a common backdrop during the local TV nightly news programs. Watching the local TV news inspired me to look for locations to get several night shots of the Bay Bridge.

A really nice shot. It had a soft focus feel, but wasn't soft focus.
