View from I-House

Bonjour !

In California I discovered new passions, and one of them is photography!

I am sure you will agree with me that the Golden State is an absolutely beautiful place! It is so stunning I have found myself exploring and shooting more than ever before, to ultimately share with friends and family how splendid this place is. With breathtaking sunsets, a unique combination of city and nature, and amazing weather, the Bay Area is a fantastic playground for any photography enthusiast. No wonder there is such a large photography community here.

The best part is that you don’t even have to go far to experience some of the best views of the Bay Area. Berkeley has arguably better sunsets than San Francisco because you see the city, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the Bay Bridge. Actually you don’t even have to get out of I-House, if you have a Bay View room then you are in luck! One can’t get tired of such magnificent sunset every evening.

Today I am writing about the gorgeous view you get from I-House. In the future I will share other spots where you can enjoy some dazzling views of the Bay Area, so stay tuned!

Tip: If you don’t have a Bay View room you can go to the 7th floor I-House lounge! The three photos above were shot from there.

Enjoy the view!
