This is the Bay Bridge that connects the East bay to San Francisco. Everyone always talks about the Golden Gate Bridge when talking about San Francisco. However this bridge is beautiful in it's own right. It is my favorite bridge and she looks so pretty all lit up!
I wanted to take the shot from the other side of the bay since i had not seen an image of it from that vantage point. I waited for about an hour for it to light up and then someone told me you can only see the lights from the city side. Soooooo, i went to the city and captured this view.
The Bay Lights is the world’s largest LED light sculpture, 1.8 miles wide and 500 feet high. Inspired by the Bay Bridge’s 75th Anniversary, its 25,000 white LED lights are individually programmed by artist Leo Villareal to create a never-repeating, dazzling display across the Bay Bridge West Span through 2015.
The Bay Lights is a monumental tour de force eight times the scale of the Eiffel Tower’s 100th Anniversary lighting. Shining from dusk until 2:00 a.m. for two years, it will impact over 50 million people in the Bay Area, with billions more seeing it in the media and online. By conservative estimates, $97 million dollars will be added to the local economy.
