The photo was taken this morning from the San Carlos Hills (between San Francisco and San Jose) on the peninsula that separates San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean. The sun is rising behind the East Bay hills on the far south end of the bay. San Jose would be to the far right in the photo.
Notice the birds top left.
A sunrise full of promise for a great day.

Absolutely gorgeous! I love how you can see the sun and see how the city slowly “wakes up” with the light. Great pic, Cathy!
Thanks, Jade. I just wish my camera battery had lasted long enough to get another shot with those birds.
beautiful! And so peaceful! love it!
Thanks, Yvonne. I was feeling kind of peaceful when I took it — actually, I was still a little tired!
i just visited san francisco just for a short period of time but loved it!
Nicely framed sunset with the birds – such a serene image 🙂
