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 […]

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 […]
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 […]

San Francisco celebrates the SF Giants post season run into the baseball World Series. Fans are wearing orange and black and several buildings in the city are illuminated with orange lights. This already happened two years ago when the Giants won their first title in SF. So I was ready this time to explore the […]
A few months ago, we were on a pier next to the Ferry Building during the evening twilight hours. I was taking some long-time exposures of the waterfront and the Bay Bridge. I like the feeling these black&white images provide. Image exposure times of more than a minute help to smooth out movements. The ocean […]
