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 […]

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 […]
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 […]
On Friday night, I went location scouting in San Francisco for Saturday’s full moon. I didn’t find what I was looking for, so Saturday I went to my backup location on pier 7 near the Ferry Building. One reason to go to there was to avoid taking the same images I took back in 2011 […]
So true today: after the storm comes the sunshine. In the morning we had heavy rain while in the afternoon the sun was out again. Still, I was concerned that the clouds in the east would hide the full moon. I ended up with a 5 minute window where the moon was only partially hidden. But this […]
These pictures were taken one day before the real full moon. This allowed me to capture the moon a bit higher in the sky when the sky was not completely dark. Coincidently, the moon’s orbit was almost closest to earth (perigee) which makes the moon appear bigger and brighter. This picture shows the strength of the moon light. […]
I was looking forward to get some nice full moon pictures. But these past few days, rain clouds made it almost impossible. I got a few hints of a moon, but nothing exciting. Today, I finally got a clean view of a 99.6% full moon.
2019 came to an end and I took advantage of some downtime to review the images I made over the last 12 months. It’s always interesting to see where my photographic adventures take me, both from a geographical and artistic point of view. I enjoy as well revisiting my favorites from the past. Thank you […]
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 […]
