Views from the Bicycle Seat

Glassy Water Sunrise

Artist - Jon Jeffress

"Glassy Water Sunrise" is a newly added photo in our Sunrises and Seascapes collections. Living near the bay offers numerous opportunities. First, it is a great place to ride bikes. There is nothing like the bay front views to get you going bright and early (or at o'dark thirty) when you would rather be sleeping. Second, the photo opportunities are nearly endless, from sunrise shots on the western shore and sunset shots on the eastern shore and everything in between.

Those of you that have known me for a while know that I have two passions, bicycling and photography. Bicycling allows you to connect with nature in a way, but it is only in the present moment. Photography allows you to connect with nature too, but in a way that you can keep and share for years to come. On this particular August day I had plans to ride with a friend from Arlington Park at 7 AM, but I wanted to get more miles in than my friend wanted to do. So what did I do, I hopped on my bike at 5:20 AM and rode to the bay front to meet my friend. I couldn't have asked for a better morning. In addition to getting in a nice 50 mile ride in for the morning, I was rewarded with a beautiful sunrise at Arlington park. I hope you enjoy this photo as much as I do.
