You’ll Never Look At San Francisco The Same After Watching This

Thursday, April 3, 2014

Having recently returned home from San Francisco, a city I hadn’t seen in about 10 years, I’m still trying to get over just how damn scenic that city is. It’s hard to compare any major city in the world in terms of pure spectacle one sees in almost every direction they look there (such as looking toward the Golden Gate Bridge during sunset, the Golden Gate Bridge as you pass under it by boat or the famed “Painted Ladies” with downtown in the background).

The above video was recently forwarded to me from someone who knew I was heading to the city soon. Shot by photographer Simon Christen, this time-lapse video focuses on the famous fog that rolls in from the Pacific Ocean and over and through the bay due to various unique meteorological conditions present in and around the city far too complicated far me to explain here.

Though hard to understand, try to be content with simply watching the amazing show Mother Nature puts on for San Franciscans all year long.
