Where Do You Want To Go?

I have a strange request regarding a project I’m working on.  I’m interested in interesting, cultural, or historical locations and places you have been to, or want to go to someday.  An example would be The Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, CA, or The Tower of London in London, UK.  If you could comment back your dream location I would be really appreciative.  It’s a crowd sourcing effort, so the more the merrier.  Thanks!

The Golden Gate Bridge

A coupe of years ago I was in San Francisco on business and had a few hours to myself.  So I decided to drive out to the Golden Gate bridge to check it out.  There are great parks and trails all around the bridge, and it seemed every time I changed location, the views became even more spectacular.  I didn’t have my normal camera with me; however, I did have my wife’s point-and-shoot Nikon.  So the moral of the story is: you don’t need to have a great camera to take awesome photos.

Golden Gate

without comments

The Golden Gate bridge some may consider one of the most recognizable structures in the world.  Part of both U.S. Route 101 and California State Route 1, the structure links the city of San Francisco, on the northern tip of the San Francisco Peninsula, to Marin County.  It is considered one of the modern Wonders of The World.  This shot was taken from Battery Boutelle, which is just south of the bridge toll plaza.  The bridge is surrounded with several parks and hiking trails where you can find one breath taken view of the bridge after another.
