• A Juniper Tree in Yosemite

    A few weeks ago, I spent a weekend in Yosemite. It was yet another reminder how fast the weather can change. At 6pm the sun was shining, at 7pm it rained and at 8pm, the clouds parted for a beautiful sunset. For that sunset, I went to Olmsted Point since it provides nice views in different […]


  • 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 […]


  • Harvest Moon over Golden Gate Bridge

    Last week was Super Harvest Moon. Yep, not just a Harvest Moon. It was the third ‘super’ full moon in a row and it was the biggest one of the year. So I went to a classic location to capture this event: Marin Headlands. There was a fog bank hanging over the east bay hills, […]


  • 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 […]


  • 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 […]


  • Crescent Moon with Venus over Bernal Heights

    It is not that long ago that I captured the moon with Venus over Bernal heights [link]. Tonight we had a similar situation and I couldn’t resist to take my camera out of the bag. But I didn’t stop after the first few images. Today I set up my camera to capture the sequence of […]


  • Moon and Venus over Bernal Heights

    Being busy with unpacking from my recent trip to Burning Man, I totally missed tonight’s sunset. I saw the beautiful pastel colors in the sky, but didn’t have time to leave home to try to capture this. But a little bit later while preparing the BBQ to cook dinner, I saw the moon and Venus […]


  • Yosemite Valley Fall Colors

    Early November is fall color season in Yosemite National Park. Since last year’s winter was very dry, most waterfalls have dried up and the rivers are running very low. Maybe that’s the reason this beautiful park is not crowded anymore. Now is a great time to visit! I was in Yosemite about the same time last year […]


  • Lunar Eclipse over Golden Gate Bridge

    The alarm clock was ringing early today. The plan was to shoot the Lunar Eclipse over Golden Gate Bridge. For once, we were lucky since there was no fog covering the bay and the bridge. Initially, it was still very dark and, although the lunar eclipse was already in full swing, the moon was still […]
