The Golden Gate Bridge can be understood as a suspension bridge that spans from the Golden Gate, at opening of the San Francisco Bay onto the Pacific Ocean. It simultaneously forms a part of US Highway 101 and State Route 1; that joins the San Francisco City on its northern extent of the San Francisco Peninsula up to the Marin County. The proposal for the construction of Golden Gate took in a 1916 through an article by former engineering student James Wilkins in the San Francisco Bulletin.
This construction is considered to be the world’s longest suspension subsequent to its completion in the year 1937. Ever since then, it has been a symbol of international repute representing San Francisco as well as the United States. However, the span length of this bridge has been surpassed by eight other bridges ever since its construction. Regardless of this fact, it still stands as the second longest suspension bridge only after the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge (New York City), in the United States.
It is one of the most photographed structures in the US and even on a global scenario. The Golden Gate Bridge presents a beautiful view at different hours of the day. During the month of October and November, it appears a spectacle view point from each perspective.
It is distinguished by its reddish color that that blends appropriately with its environs, and appears good in a foggy weather. This is why; it offers an ultimate spot for photographers or those who are enthusiasts about photography.
