Bustle on the Bay – San Francisco Bay, California

In the pre-dawn glow, large container ships make use of San Francisco Bay’s relative vacancy.

This is a photograph of San Francisco Bay just before sunrise, from the top of Bernal Heights. My main quest for this outing was to take pictures of downtown San Francisco. But when I got atop the hill, the industrial part of the city was more appealing to me. I loved the contrast of the quietude of the sky and city with the bustling port. The bay will soon be crowded by recreational boaters, which makes the comparatively calm and vacant waters of daybreak prime time for industrial endeavors. I also loved the way it glowed like an ember, with the sun nearing the horizon from below.
