Stefan managed to capture the magic of the Golden Gate bridge, as the sun set and the fog crept in.

Stefan said: “For five months of the year I travel the world on the hunt for the perfect image.

“These pictures were taken about one hour after a truly amazing sunset, during a five day stay in San Francisco.

“I drove up to the bridge viewpoint about four times a day hoping for the ultimate shot.

“My main aim was to take a photograph of the bridge coming out of fog and I was lucky- on the last of this five days I saw the bridge appearing out of the mist and I grabbed my camera to take these shots.”
