Golden Gate Bridge – San Francisco, California, USA. To make this photo was one of the objectives of our expedition USA 2016 during which we flew around all of the continental USA (without Alaska this time).

I was concerned that it would not work out as the southern part of the western coast was covered in fog and low clouds. Just at noon, abeam San Francisco  the fog and clouds started disappearing and we managed to make this photo which I think is even more interesting than just the Bridge in sunshine.

To fly over the Golden Gate Bridge is not too difficult if you fly alongside the coast. The bridge is below the TMA of San Francisco International airport so no need for a permission. One just needs to watch the altitude and not to get completely carried away with the beauty of the Bay area, the harbour, the island of Alcatraz and  Sausalito on the other side of the Bay.
