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 […]

When I was asked to join the black&white photo challenge, I immediately knew that I did not want to use already published images. So I either selected unpublished work or created new work. But during this process I thought it would be nice to highlight some of previously published oldies as well. So here we go. […]
2014 was an exciting year. One of its highlights was definitely my first trip to China where I visited Guizhou Province and Shanghai. Many other trips were closer to home: journeys up and down the California coast, to the Eastern Sierra, to Tahoe, to Yosemite, to Oregon, to … Well, it was very fulfilling. It […]
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 […]

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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
A few days ago, I took some evening pictures from the San Francisco waterfront. This is the blog entry in case you missed it. Today, I went back but went past the Ferry Building to Pier 5. When I arrived at the end of the pier, I immediately knew that only a panorama could capture […]
