With about a million photographers living in the San Francisco Bay Area (or so it seems), it can be challenging to get a unique perspective. While I will not claim this is a unique vantage point, it is definitely something I have not seen very much, and I've never run into any other photographers in this spot. This is actually a reprocessed version of a shot from 2014. From my original post: For some reason when getting up to photograph sunrise always ends up in a race against the light. Even if I get up on time and I am well prepared, I usually end up running the last few minutes. In this case it turned out that some trees were blocking part of my view from the location I picked, something I did not remember from the many times I had been to this spot. So there I was, running along the trail and up hills, ignoring the spooked coyote on my path, to try and make it in time for blue hour. Arriving a bit late for the real balanced light I still managed to catch the various colors before sunrise, racing across the sky.
