This Amazing Timelapse Video Shows San Francisco Like You’ve Never Seen it Before

We all run around hectically day in and day out, sometimes too much to really slow down and appreciate this amazing city we live in. So, if you’re currently stuck in front of your computer, we suggest taking a quick time out to watch this timelapse video of San Francisco from Nicholas Gonzales of Arcadian Bay Photography.

The video captures breathtaking scenes around the city: See the sun (and moon!) rising over Coit Tower; cars scurrying across the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges, and then slowing down for the tight curves of Lombard Street; the fog rolling over the Golden Gate; and the sun melting into the Pacific. Oddly enough, watching everything sped up is an incredibly relaxing experience.

If this has motivated you to get out and see all of this for yourself, we recommend starting with these 10 jaw-dropping views in San Francisco.
