This bridge is not far from my home and on my way to work, at least it's one of the routes I take depending on how late I am. If I am not in a hurry I take the road I'm standing on to shoot this photo. Ironically if I'm in a hurry I'm up on top of the bridge going 70 mph. I really prefer not to be in a hurry because of views like this. The timing of the sun over the horizon and under the bridge is a happy coincidence. I generally keep a camera with me and this morning I had the tripod too and was all set and ready to go.
I spent maybe 15 minutes here shooting and that was mostly walking back and forth trying to minimize the brush in the foreground and still get a cool shot of the bridge and foggy valley.
