• 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!           […]


  • Half Dome with Alpenglow

    I spent last weekend in the Eastern Sierra enjoying fall colors. It was a very delightful, although windy and cold, trip. Late Sunday afternoon, while I stopped at the gas station in Lee Vining, a few snowflakes started falling down. A storm system was moving into the Sierra. Since I didn’t want to cross 120 during a […]


  • 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 […]


  • 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


  • 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 […]


  • Sunset in Capitola

    Capitola is a small coastal town east of Santa Cruz, California, at the northern end of the Monterey Bay. Usually if you are on the pacific coast, you see the setting sun over the ocean. But the Capitola beach faces south east and not west. This means sun sets behind you. Lately we have one […]


  • Pier at Seacliff State Beach

    Due to the lack of snow I spent a day at the beach instead of a day skiing. It is really strange to wear swim trunks in January in Northern California and not to be cold. I enjoyed it, but hopefully I wont get used to this! At sunset I visited Seacliff State Park. They […]


  • Postcard from the Mendocino Coast

    As it has been a very long time since my last post so I thought to show you two images from last night. With them I wish you a wonderful holiday season!


  • Postcard – Bernal Heights

    This morning I posted some images of a gorgeous sunset in Bandon, Oregon [link] and now we get the same treat tonight here in San Francisco! What a coincidence! I just stepped outside to capture the glowing read sky with the silhouette of the top Bernal Heights with its trees and antennas. What a start […]


  • Oregon Coast – Bandon

    Last year for Thanksgiving weekend, we made a trip to Portland, Oregon. While we barely stopped on the way there, we took the longer but very scenic coastal road on the way back to California. Our last stop before the border was in Bandon, where we enjoyed a gorgeous sunset. The timing was almost perfect. […]


  • An evening at Glacier Point

    A few weeks ago, we spent a weekend in Yosemite. In the morning we enjoyed the Fall Colors in the Yosemite Valley I talked about in a previous post (link), later in the day, we headed up to Glacier Point to enjoy the sunset. While the sun was setting, I noticed a patch of light on a […]


  • San Francisco’s Sutro Tower at Sunset

    There is not that much to say…  An other beautiful sunset here in San Francisco. Under a big sky, Twin Peaks is covered in a thick layer of fog through which the Sutro Tower antennas stick out.


  • Double Rainbow Over Potrero Hill

    I was doing some work on my computer when I glanced through the windows. There were some nice sunset colors in the sky. So I went outside to enjoy the show. When I turned my head eastwards, I was stunned: a huge double rainbow was up there. A quickly grabbed my camera to shoot some […]
