The photographer: Bill Sanders of Gold River

Behind the lens: My photography bucket list was completed the day I was able to go atop (legally, through an acquaintance) the Golden Gate Bridge's south anchorage point tower. Even though it was a beautiful day with very little wind, it was definitely scary, mainly due to having to climb an exterior ladder, hand over hand, the last 30 to 40 feet to the platform on top. An incredible, once-in-a-lifetime experience.
