• They didn’t turn on the light.

    A few weeks ago, San Francisco hosted the festivities for the Super Bowl extravaganza. A lot of buildings had their celebration lights on, like they do for the Christmas Holiday season. The Bay Lights on the Bay Bridge were up and shining again, and the Transamerica Pyramid was dressed up for this happening too. I didn’t want […]


  • 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, […]


  • The Lights of Zhenyuan

    This post is part of my Guizhou-China blog post series. Finally the start of our photography tour led by William Yu was here. Below is a simple map that shows a few places where we stopped during the day and where we stayed at night. As you can imagine, we travelled quite a distance. The first day was mostly […]


  • Jiaxiu Pavilion – Guiyang, China

    This is the first post of a blog series documenting my recent trip to China. Guiyang is the capital of the Guizhou province in southwestern China and the start and end of our photography tour. I joined William Yu and a group of like-minded travelers to explore the Guizhou province, learn more about its ethnic […]


  • Supermoon at Tenaya Lake

    This year’s supermoon coincided with a trip to Yosemite. Obviously I couldn’t leave my favorite park without trying to capture this event. You might ask, “what is a supermoon”? The distance between the earth and the moon varies over the year. When the full moon is the closest to earth, the moon appears bigger and […]


  • Yosemite Falls Moonbow, take 2

    One month ago, I tried to photograph the moonbow on Yosemite Falls. I wasn’t that happy with the pictures taken from the far end of Cooks Meadow. This Saturday was perigee moon, aka supermoon. This is when the moon’s orbit is closest to earth and the moon is bigger and much brighter. At the same time, the […]


  • San Francisco Waterfront with Holiday Lights 2

    A few days ago, I took some evening pictures from the San Francisco waterfront. This is the blog entry in case you missed it. Today, I went back but went past the Ferry Building to Pier 5. When I arrived at the end of the pier, I immediately knew that only a panorama could capture […]


  • Merced River with El Capitan and its Reflection

    We spent last weekend in Yosemite enjoying the fall colors. While walking along Merced River, I discovered this spot with El Capitan and a nice reflection. Initially, I walked a bit further and discovered a lot of photographers on the other side of the Merced River taking in the scenery from Valley View. That’s not […]
