• Patrouille de France – San Francisco Flyby

    La Patrouille de France is the French equivalent of the Blue Angels. Currently they are on a US tour with their Dassault/Dornier Alpha Jets and an accompanying Airbus A400M. They criss-cross Northern America and had a Golden Gate Bridge flyby here in San Francisco, something I couldn’t miss. The Alpha Jets flew all over the […]


  • Clouds over Bernal Heights

    It happens often that there are a few clouds hanging around Bernal Heights during the afternoon and disappearing right before sunset. But tonight the clouds stayed and it was nice to see them illuminated by the setting sun. And thank you to all the neighbours that were on the hill enjoying the scenery. It is cool to see their […]


  • Palace of Fine Arts at Night

    Instead of sitting in front on my computer and waiting for the results of today’s election, I went to the Palace of Fine Arts to have fun with my camera. Had a good time. But now back, I have trouble finding words…. Hope you enjoy the photos without additional comments!           […]


  • 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 […]


  • Dancing the Wood Line

    At my opening reception of the Bay Area Swiss Artists Show, I met Natalie Wagner, a Swiss dancer and choreographer, who is here in San Francisco for a six month residency. We decided to collaborate on a photoshoot and a few days ago we made it happen. Yes, I love the outdoor and landscape images, but […]


  • 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 […]


  • 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 […]


  • Open Studios 2014

    Last weekend was my Open Studios event with Studio Nocturne at Fort Mason. I had a great time. A big thank you to everyone who came or who tried to come. Parking was very difficult during the entire weekend and I know of several people who were unable to find parking. All my work on […]


  • Partial Solar Eclipse in San Francisco

    A few years ago I experienced an annular eclipse in Redding, CA (link). This was really spectacular and it was the first solar eclipse I had ever seen. Today’s partial solar eclipse was not that high up on the scale but I didn’t want to miss it. It was a bit foggy here in San […]


  • Bernal Heights Sunset

    While the San Francisco Giants were battling the Kansas City Royals, the sky over Bernal Heights had its own spectacular show: Buy Image


  • 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, […]


  • 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 […]


  • 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 […]
