Inside the Frame: Golden Gate Bridge

I was on a hill above the fog when I shot this photo. In accordance to the rule of thirds,  I placed the fog on the lower third of the frame. The fog nicely framed the city as well. Lastly, the negative space (which I couldn’t avoid) brought balance against the scene on the lower half of the frame. It also portrayed a grand, vast environment.
