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 […]

Since 2011, I review my images at the end of the year and select my favorites. I try to balance them so that they do not all show star trails or be from the same location. This year’s selection contains pictures from Seattle, Mongolia, Paris, Oregon, San Francisco, Death Valley, Bodie and the California coast. […]
It is this time of the year where one revisits the past 12 months. For me, among others, this means reviewing some of the 13,000 images I took during the year and select my favorites. Let me tell you that’s not an easy task! Already during the year, I pre select candidates. But at the end, […]

When looked at it from the eastern side, this backlit waterfall glows intensely for a few minutes before dusk. It is something beautiful to see. Some call this effect the natural […]

The current incarnation of my website exists due to the power of The Turning Gate‘s (TTG) Lightroom web plugins. One of its features is the open framework that allows extension. In the past I already wrote about how I customized my site using something called phplugins: Vertical Navigation Breadcrumbs But there is one feature that […]
A few weeks ago after a day of skiing under a cloudy sky, my sunset expectations were low. Was I wrong! Towards the end of the day, the cloud cover moved a bit and revealed an open sky along parts of the horizon. This was when I became more optimistic. There is a little beach […]
This is the second installment of my 10 favorite photos of the year compilation. Here is the link to last year’s favorites in case you want to see them (again). Apart from shooting in my backyard (San Francisco Bay Area), up and down the Pacific coast and in the Sierra Nevada (especially Yosemite), I traveled to […]
