any hill near the bay will have a good way to see a sunset
Sunrise would probably be from Twin Peaks (the view faces east... the sun will rise over the East Bay hills)... BUT, be very careful of bad guys up there looking to rob early-morning photographers.
Sunset would be good from anywhere along the western edge of the city... Ocean Beach, Baker Beach. Or in comfort from the Top of the Mark with a cocktail in hand.
I'd say Kirby Cove is the best for sunrise photos that include the GG Bridge and City.
I love looking east while the sun is setting to the west. In the right spot, it lights up and gleams the windows of Russian Hill. I see it from my roof so I don't know if being elevated makes a difference, but along Marina Green might be an opportunity.
Wow those are some great ideas and tips! Thank you!
Especially for the warnings to be careful. We will!
