A few years ago, while I was still working rotating shifts at the Golden Gate Bridge, we put a portable light tower on top of the South Anchorage for security lighting. Four 1,000 watt vapor lamps cast broad shafts of light in every direction and illuminated the structural steel members of the Approach Towers like a scene out of a Film Noir mystery.
Whenever I made my weekly light check on Swing shift I took a few photos and over the years I collected some interesting images in both color and black & white. This one reminds me of a bare root rose, or perhaps a tree trunk, albeit one that is almost 200 feet tall.
