Neighbor Jen lives in Bernal’s La Lengua Autonomous Region, and (unlike us) she is an early riser. She has put her Circadian rhythm to good use by sharing these lovely photos of Bernal Hill taken from her home on Sunday morning, in the wee hours of the new day:
I live at the bottom of Bernal (aka La Lengua), and I get up ridiculously early. It’s pretty nice to see that bright pink light filtering through the curtains.

Neighbor Markus lives in northeastern Bernal Heights, in the Santana Rancho subdistrict. On Sunday morning, he got up ridiculously early to photograph the sunrise from atop Twin Peaks.
Cleverly, Nature conspired to place the sun directly behind Neighbor Markus’s house — and the rest of Bernal Heights — when he took this photo, which was then shared in the stylish Bernalwood Group on Flickr.
Frankly, Bernal looks pretty fantastic. We also look like we could use a cup of coffee.

Wow. Peep this superb photo of the recent full moon as seen from Bernal Hill that “Lee Comma Dennis” shared via the Bernalwood Flickr Pool.
We had some friends over for dinner last night, so I couldn’t sneak up to Bernal Hill to shoot last night’s amazing sunset. But I watched it with a drink in my hand from the back yard — an awe-inspiring explosion of rich pinks and yellows, with rich textures created by a layer of high clouds.
Fortunately, Brian Hollinger was in position to get the shot you see above, while Rachel Balik Instagrammed the one below:
UPDATE: Our friends at @VisualSF shared this bonus photo, with is super-pink and super-textured. Wowzilla:
Wow. Check out this photo Brian Hollinger took yesterday:
Sun setting creates very cool volcano effect with a fog lava flow from Bernal Heights.
Yes!! Super hyper cool.
UPDATE: Brian kindly shared a high-res version of his photo with us, so we can zoom and enhance to bring you this close-up of the Lava Zone:
We all know that the sun rises in the east (over Oakland), and sets in the west (over Twin Peaks) — right?
Yes! That’s true! But during this week’s huge full moon, Neighbor David witnessed a trick of the light that looked an awful lot like dawn emerging from the west:
I got this shot while walking my dog yesterday…
The full moon looks like the sun rising in the west over Noe Valley, as seen from the southwest corner of Bernal Hill!

We don’t want to brag, so we’ll just tell it straight up: Celebrities dig us.
It’s just true. Bernalwood is very popular among the celebrity set, and this week we got a very special celebrity shout-out from everyone’s favorite low-altitude meteorological phenomenon: Karl the Fog.
(Fun Fact I: When he’s not tweeting at us, Karl the Fog even takes Bernalwood’s phone calls!)
Anyhow, Karl wanted us all to see the terrific photos of Bernal Heights (and Karl) posted at the Jellybeansofdoom blog:
One evening we were out and stopped by Bernalwood to walk around the hill and enjoy the sunset. It’s located just north of us here in San Francisco. It was a beautiful evening.
We were slowly headed back to the car when I looked up and saw that Karl (The Fog) was moving in wispy tendrils along the top of Bernal Hill.
(Fun Fact II: The only thing Karl likes more than making a dramatic entrance is making a dramatic entrance when there are paparazzi around to capture it.)
