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 […]

Moonrise over Coit Tower

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 […]

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 […]

Full Moon over Bernal Heights

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 […]

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 […]

Star shower over San Francisco bay

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 […]

America’s Cup, Race 3/4

This post is part of my America’s Cup in San Francisco blog post series. After a beautiful day with blue sky for day 1 of the America’s Cup, day 2 was a typical San Francisco day with fog hanging over the bridge. There was another difference: while Emirates Team New Zealand won the first two races of […]

America’s Cup, Race 1/2

This post is part of my America’s Cup in San Francisco blog post series. Finally it is September and the first day of America’s Cup racing arrived. After the lopsided races in the Louis Vuitton Coup, we finally got two teams competing…. or almost… Emirates Team New Zealand won both races, although with a much smaller margin, […]

Moon and Venus over Bernal Heights

Being busy with unpacking from my recent trip to Burning Man, I totally missed tonight’s sunset. I saw the beautiful pastel colors in the sky, but didn’t have time to leave home to try to capture this. But a little bit later while preparing the BBQ to cook dinner, I saw the moon and Venus […]

RedBull Youth America’s Cup, Race 7

This post is part of my America’s Cup in San Francisco blog post series. I missed the first two days of racing of the RedBull Youth America’s Cup (RBYAC) here in San Francisco, but I was very pleased to see our Swiss Team Tilt being in second place. Unfortunately, they couldn’t keep this position during races four […]
