Reader Julie took this wonderful sunrise photo from atop the hill last Friday.
It looks just like a sunset, but — check it out! — it’s happening over the Bay Bridge, instead of Sutro Tower. How weird! Indeed, if you are a sleep enthusiast like me, you may be shocked (shocked!) to learn that when a sunrise happens, it happens to the east. Who knew??
Since I have no intention to reproduce this experiment by waking up early myself, Julie’s fab photo provides all the evidence I need that a) the sun really does rise to the east and b) sunrise can be spectacular.

Thanks Julie for the beautiful photo!
Hi, I’m Julie. I’m glad you enjoyed it. I love to head out for a good sunrise. Now, If y’all could just rid the area of those killer skeeters, life would be perfect. 🙂
Thanks again for sharing your shots!
I suspect a hoax! Sunrise is when you open your eyes and the sun is already out, or at least hiding behind clouds. This eastern business sounds fishy…
I just picked up a 2012 calendar from Good Life Grocery, and guess what the December 2011 picture is? “Sunrise from Bernalwood” by Julie! It looks gorgeous in print.
