Postcard from the San Francisco Bay at sunrise

November 14, 2013 in California,Places,Postcards,United States

I spent a few days last week in San Francisco for a work event, and I never quite managed to get on West Coast time. To be honest, it didn’t bother me that much: I much prefer early mornings and early nights to sleeping in and staying out late. Even so, regularly waking up before sunrise was excessive even for me.

I do love being able to see the sun rise: there’s something special for me in starting the day with the light. So one morning, I decided to head down to AT&T Park (the home of the San Francisco Giants) to see the sun rise over the marina. Empty except for a few ambitious runners, the area surrounding the park was serene: palm trees, sailboats, silhouettes of ball players and sea lions. I left my headphones at home and listened to the cry of the seagulls and the lapping of the waves: a peaceful start to another beautiful day in San Francisco.

What’s your favorite photo of the sunrise in San Francisco?

  • Beautiful sunrise. I rarely make it up for sunrise either but I actually love it when I’m a bit jetlagged and wake up in time to see it. Definitely my favourite time of the day – if only it weren’t so early!

    beautiful!! cannot decide on my favourite photo.. you must have really enjoyed it! :)

  • Beautiful! I think my favorite is the third one, with the reflection of the trees in the water – but they’re all lovely.

    I love all of these photos but if I had to choose I like the second from the last the best. I really should wake up earlier… haha

  • Rebecca and the World

    Great photos! Faves would be either first or third, but they’re all gorgeous. Reminds me I need to get up a bit earlier every now and then…

    Haha! I love sunrise–wish I had more motivation to wake up early and see it more often. Prefer to be woken up with natural light–soooo that means it’s always after the sun is up!

    Thank you! It was a lovely morning!

  • camorose

    Thank you! It was such a nice morning.

    Whenever I do wake up early for the sunrise, I do wish that I did it more often!

  • camorose

    Same! I need to do this more often :)
