Photographers love San Francisco because of its serene allure–it’s hills offer sweeping vistas, the bay engulfs it on three sides allowing for reflection and its bridges quietly accent it’s natural beauty. It may be a bustling, metropolitan city, but when viewed from a distance it leaves a peaceful, reflective impression. Sacramento photographer Bryan Allo has captured its grace in a meditative timelapse project–requiring hours spent on San Francisco’s peaks, capturing all of its special magic.

I always wanted to live like an artist–whatever that means. I love the idea of waking up in my studio and painting all day. These images of artists studios were my inspiration (especially the one of Frida Kahlo, above, painting in bed).
From top to bottom, Frida Kahlo, Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollock and Roy Lichenstein. If you’re interested in seeing more, go here.

Sun-pillars are a column of light appearing to extend up from the Sun caused by flat fluttering ice-crystals reflecting sunlight from the upper atmosphere.
Light pillars form during freezing temperatures from flat fluttering ice crystals that form near the ground in a form of light snow. They then reflect ground lights in columns not unlike a Sun-pillar. This light pillar, below, was taken in Fairbanks, Alaska. The light surrounding an ice skating rink gave the light pillars the colorful array.
