Caption

Night travel on the San Francisco - Oakland Bay Bridge is a real pleasure. The vapor sodium lighting system diffuses a soft non-glare light and leads an effective brilliance to the night. The massive towers silhouetted against the sky and reflected in the water create a lasting impression.
