A friend of mine, Matt, took a photo of the Bay Bridge and posted it on Facebook. I was very much intriuged by the photo and wanted to try my own to see if I could capture the same sort of sentiment. I had another “get up at the crack of dawn” to capture the morning as the sun woke up the city by the bay… Up at 4, on the road at 5 and in the city at 6. This is so much easier in December! 🙂
First light: the lights on the bridge did not stay on long after the first few mins of daybreak.
An interesting reflection street light. Not sure why the standard overhead glass bulb didn’t fit the bill here.
First glows of orange and yellow!
I love the rays of sun hitting the bay. While the original photo didn’t have any fog, the color here was really nice to see and photograph!
And the sunrise is here!
And a full view of the bridge is in focus!

This is the western end on Interstate 80. The next exists are US 101 which is the official end of the freeway. It’s another 2,900 miles to Teaneck, NJ eastbound!
