Bay Area Daybreak

Posted by
Stephen Phillips (San Francisco, United States) on 24 January 2011 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

This begins a series of images taken this Sunday Morning ( 23 January 2011). This is the view from the Skyline area of my hometown of Oakland. This capture is just after the sunlight bathed over from the ridge I am standing on. Over the next few days I'll post images of this beautiful morning as I make my way into San Francisco. The next three are panoramas.

The low angle of the rising sun gave you some great shadows to work with, most noticeably in the foreground trees, but the shadows among the buildings really makes the texture pop.
