Backup plan: Golden Gate Bridge!

I haven’t been posting images on my blog for a while but this doesn’t mean I haven’t been out shooting. My backlog of pictures waiting to see the light of the day is steadily growing. I have to got to do something about that. Let’s start with last nights photos: Yesterday, I aimed to capture […]

The Bay Lights meet Panama-Pacific International Exposition Anniversary

How time flies! I took these images last Thursday night and intended to post them shortly afterwards. Obviously I got sidetracked, but now I am finally releasing them to the world. In 1915, San Francisco hosted the Panama-Pacific International Exposition (PPIE) which primary purpose was to celebrate the opening of the Panama Canal. But at the same […]

At the aquarium

After all these black and white images, it is time for something more colorful. A few weeks ago, I spent the afternoon at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. I was really intrigued by the different jellyfishes on display. Luckily I had my camera with me and was able to take a few snapshots.       […]

5 Days of Black and White Photo Challenge

A while ago, my friend Regis challenged me to take part of the Five Day Black and White Photo Challenge. The aim is to post a new b/w image for five consecutive days and invite someone each day to join the quest. I have posted the images on social media, but thought it would be nice to […]

Full Moon over Golden Gate Bridge

Tonight was full moon and I went to the Marina headlands to capture it rising over the Golden Gate Bridge with San Francisco in the background. And I have to admit that I am really happy with the results! I went to two different spots that were a few hundred feet apart. At the first […]

Moonrise over Coit Tower

Tonight I went to the Aquatic Park here in San Francisco to see the moon rising over Coit Tower. Right from the beginning I knew the timing was not ideal as the moonrise was 53 minutes before sunset. And I was right: I got an almost perfect alignment, but the sky was too bright because […]

Half Moon Bay at Sunset

Saturday night we met with friends for dinner at one of our favorite sushi places in Half Moon Bay, Sushi Main Street. I had my camera with me so I could capture images of the sunset before going to the restaurant. While walking along the Pacific Coastal Trail, I found this spot with the putting […]

Full Moon over Golden Gate Bridge

Two weeks ago, I got up early to capture the setting full moon over the Golden Gate Bridge. I arrived in time to get the first light on the San Francisco skyline. The moon was still high in the sky but I got worried about the fog behind the bridge. Sometimes just a little bit […]

Full Moon over Bernal Heights

The plan for tonight was to capture the rising full moon behind the Bernal Heights Park peak. I arrived a bit early at my planned location to have enough time to find the best composition. Specially for photographs that show a special moon alignment, sometimes it is difficult to find the right spot because there […]

Flowering Starr King Open Space

While there was a big fire burning on the other side of San Francisco’s Potrero Hill, I preferred to photograph some of the flowers blooming at the Starr King Open Space (SKOS). For a few days I’d been thinking about capturing them. Today on my way home I passed by the SKOS with its flower […]

Bay Bridge and the Moon

Tonight I went to San Francisco’s Embarcadero to take pictures of the moon rising behind the Bay Bridge. As it turned out, the conditions were great to spend a few hours outside and having fun. When I arrived at the waterfront, the moon was already fairly high up in the sky and perfectly positioned for […]

Pillar Point Harbor Fishing Pier

I really got used to the gorgeous weather we had lately and when I ventured out this afternoon, I didn’t check any web cams to see if fog was in the air. Maybe that’s a good thing, otherwise I might have stayed home. Since I wasn’t thinking of fog, my original plan didn’t work. Still, […]
