    Okay, I did try to go but --as we were warned -- it was craziness with traffic and tourists. I got a pseudo spot in the uphill lot but despite all my layers it was still really cold. And still light out! When was the moon supposed to come up? Anyway sorry but I hadn't had dinner and didn't have it in me to wait another hour (?) for the moon. Sorry. Will check times better next time. Would have had dinner and come later since moonrise wasn't until after 8:30.

      Sorry to have bailed. I think I missed your email. I mean, I thought I dressed warm enough but that was a really cold spot.

    Hello, just to make sure: Battery Spencer at 19:30 correct? Photographed there a few times, the best view of GG bridge.

    • Eric

      That's right.

      July 12, 2014

  • Francine

    I'm sorry, I have to miss this one. Enjoy the views.

    So sad I have to cancel. We have a dinner party that sprang up at last moment, and I HAVE to go. :(.

    For those of you going - parking right on the road by the path leading to Battery Spencer is very limited, and bound to be full during tourist season. Maybe about a dozen spots, so get there early. It does turnover quickly. There is a larger parking lot down the road (the first turnoff once you turn onto Conzelman road). It's then a bit of an uphill walk to Battery Spencer along the road (narrow, so watch for cars), but very doable.

    Hope to see you all next week at Fort Point!

    Anyone going from Redwood City or south of Redwood City. Is it possible to do Car Pooling for anyone ?

  • Marilyn

    It's been very foggy lately. Is there a contingency plan if the fog gets in the way of our photos?

    What lens do you think will work best ?

    June 30, 2014

    • Eric

      It depends on what you plan to shoot. Are you looking to shoot the cityscape? The bridge? What lenses do you have?

      July 10, 2014

    • Saurav

      Hi Eric, thanks for replying. But I will have to work this weekend. Catch you at the next event.

      July 10, 2014

  • Ron E.

    I'll be there. Always wanted a special image of the bridge.
