I love how clouds continuously change their shape and disappear like they never existed before. This is exactly what happened last night. I couldn’t resist to capture it with my camera.
A couple of weeks ago, I spent a few hours with my photographer friends from Studio Nocturne SF at the Potrero Hill Power Plant, an event that was organized by Greta & Manu Schnetzler. This was a fun evening and I enjoyed playing with this industrial colossus and my little flashlight. Although I was there […]
Instead of sitting in front on my computer and waiting for the results of today’s election, I went to the Palace of Fine Arts to have fun with my camera. Had a good time. But now back, I have trouble finding words…. Hope you enjoy the photos without additional comments! […]
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 […]
In the last 10 days, Yosemite and the entire Sierra Nevada received ample amounts of precipitation. Having some free time on hand, we decided to make a short trip to Yosemite National Park to experience what we haven’t been able to see in the last few years: Yosemite with plenty of snow! When we arrived […]
How time flies! I took these images last Thursday night and intended to post them shortly afterwards. Obviously I got sidetracked, but now I am finally releasing them to the world. In 1915, San Francisco hosted the Panama-Pacific International Exposition (PPIE) which primary purpose was to celebrate the opening of the Panama Canal. But at the same […]
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, […]
This post is part of my Guizhou-China blog post series. Finally the start of our photography tour led by William Yu was here. Below is a simple map that shows a few places where we stopped during the day and where we stayed at night. As you can imagine, we travelled quite a distance. The first day was mostly […]
For a few days, work brought me to Paris. So far the weather was good and today was the first time that I got wet. It seems like I always attract rain while I am here. Tonight after dinner on my way home, I saw beautiful reflections at the recently renovated Place de la République. I […]
For a long time, I wanted to capture star-trails over San Francisco. I already tried several times, but the condition were just not right. Last night I went to the East Bay and I had a beautiful cloudless and fog-less sky. Perfect for a little experiment: Not everything went according to plan, but I am […]
I always enjoy seeing the Eiffel Tower at night when visiting Paris! Even better is taking images from a location I haven’t been before. Thanks for the rain, I got this nice reflection in the granite. Next I went down to the Seine to get a different perspective.
I love being outside at night and gazing at the stars. Due to the light pollution around big cities, only a small part of the night sky is visible. To avoid this, one has to travel far away to have a chance to see the dark sky glowing with stars and maybe even the milky […]
These two pictures were made last weekend in Yosemite National Park, just two days before full moon. Since the moon was already big and high up in the sky, it nicely illuminated Yosemite Falls and the rock face. But we were not alone out shooting. Some other photographers were doing some light painting in red/orange […]
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 […]
This year will be the 75th anniversary of San Francisco’s Bay Bridge. To celebrate this, The Bay Lights project is putting on an amazing show by having the light artist Leo Villareal turning the eastern span into a gigantic light installation. It just happened last night, while I was walking towards the Ferry Building, that they […]
