 golden gate bridge at its most beautiful.
With the total construction cost of $35 million the golden gate bridge of San-Fransisco California is the second longest and most famous suspension bridge in world. The spectacular image is taken at the time of sunset which adds up to it's beauty .The bridge's two towers rise 746 feet making them around 191 feet taller than the Monument of Washington. The construction of the grand bridge began on January 5, 1933, and was completed after more than four years.The color of the bridge was chosen an orange vermilion called the international orange. The color was selected by consulting the famous architect Irving Morrow and he suggested the color because it blends well with the natural surroundings and was also easy to detect in fog. It is the most beautiful gift of bridge engineering.
