Golden Gate Bridge Fireworks


Friends of Photography are invited to join Larson for the 75th Golden Gate Anniversary Fireworks show. Please MeetUp with Fred just above the Nike Missle Site (Marin Headlands) in the picnic area at 6:30pm to insure a good spot to make photographs of the twilight setting on the bridge and then later the fireworks which is scheduled at 9:30pm. Please bring warm clothing your own picnic dinner and perhaps something warm to drink as will enjoying the evening together. They are expecting over 500,000 people to come out for this event so lets make our spot early and then just relax and make photographs.


Your best bet (I think) is avoid the top headland road but to take the 5-minute tunnel on Bunker Road for about one mile to Field Road that turns into Fort Barry then Conzelman Road. This location a bathroom, picnic tables, outside BBQ's and some parking.  Bring some food and drink and lets hang-out and shoot photographs from this location.

See you soon!

    Although the angle of the fireworks favored the north tower of the Golden Gate Bridge we/I had a great time shooting mostly the south tower during the fireworks display. Fun blend of shooters with a great attitude who waited over three hours for this historic event.

    We should meet at the picnic area above the Missile Site overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge. There is no name for this you'll have to just look for the tripods. My cell number is[masked] if you can't fine us.

    I'm finding the directions vague when I look at the map. Are we meeting at the missile site, or the bicentennial playground??? Or is there a picnic area at the missile site?
