Backup plan: Golden Gate Bridge!

I haven’t been posting images on my blog for a while but this doesn’t mean I haven’t been out shooting. My backlog of pictures waiting to see the light of the day is steadily growing. I have to got to do something about that. Let’s start with last nights photos: Yesterday, I aimed to capture […]

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 […]

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 […]

Bay Bridge and the Moon

Tonight I went to San Francisco’s Embarcadero to take pictures of the moon rising behind the Bay Bridge. As it turned out, the conditions were great to spend a few hours outside and having fun. When I arrived at the waterfront, the moon was already fairly high up in the sky and perfectly positioned for […]

Bay Bridge with full moon

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 […]

Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco at Sunrise

Since I already planed to go to Hawk Hill in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area to photograph the fly-by of the Space Shuttle Endeavour (link), I decided to get up a few hours earlier to capture the sunrise as well. This is something I wanted to do for a long time but never had […]

Redding’s Sundial Bridge with Annular Eclipse

A few weeks ago, I photographed the annular solar eclipse in Redding. The original plan was to head up to Redding Saturday afternoon and have plenty of time for scouting. Unfortunately, we only made it to Redding early Sunday afternoon with little time left for scouting since the eclipse started around 5pm. I passed through the Shasta Lake […]

Golden Gate Bridge – 75th Anniversary Fireworks

What would be San Francisco without its Golden Gate Bridge? A glimpse of this icon is visible from many different corners of the city. A big party happened last weekend to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the bridge. Some of the festivities will continue until the end of the year. See goldengatebridge75.org/celebrate for additional information. Since I love both fireworks and […]

Golden Gate Bridge in the Fog

San Francisco and fog are almost synonyms, at least during summer. Spring and fall are the sunny seasons with little fog. We just had some gorgeous spring days and then the fogged rolled in again. Having some fog in the picture is always better than having just a clear blue sky. So I ventured out […]
