Interesting Photo of the Day: Golden Gate Sunset

Photographers love shooting during the golden hour. The sky turns magical and everything the light touches looks golden. The soft lighting makes the surroundings appear so vibrant. This image of the Golden Gate Bridge taken by photographer Che Sun is another good example of why shooting during sunset is worth it:

Fog and low-hanging clouds are a common weather phenomenon that occurs in San Francisco, and Sun has portrayed that perfectly in this image.
