Lightning Storm – Golden Gate Bridge

A Pacific Storm blows in to the Bay Area bring rain, thunder and lightning above the towers of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Below the world famous Golden Gate Bridge stands a relic of the Civil War appropriately named Fort Point. Coming in from the Pacific and wrapping around the tip of the San Francisco peninsula a wave curls and crashes upon the rocks and sea walls that protect the small strip of land from erosion. This area is often popular with local surfers who ride these wave and bail in the last few seconds as the waves crash near the rocks. In the distance the Marin Headland stand behind the bridge and disappear in the stormy weather along the horizon.
