As it turned out, it was a good thing that I decided to make a phone call on the balcony, otherwise I wouldn’t have noticed the promising sky. It was just around sunset and it didn’t take long until I grabbed my camera to take a few shots. I loved how the clouds were hovering […]
It happens often that there are a few clouds hanging around Bernal Heights during the afternoon and disappearing right before sunset. But tonight the clouds stayed and it was nice to see them illuminated by the setting sun. And thank you to all the neighbours that were on the hill enjoying the scenery. It is cool to see their […]
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! […]
I spent last weekend in the Eastern Sierra enjoying fall colors. It was a very delightful, although windy and cold, trip. Late Sunday afternoon, while I stopped at the gas station in Lee Vining, a few snowflakes started falling down. A storm system was moving into the Sierra. Since I didn’t want to cross 120 during a […]
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 […]
While the San Francisco Giants were battling the Kansas City Royals, the sky over Bernal Heights had its own spectacular show: Buy Image
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 […]
Saturday night we met with friends for dinner at one of our favorite sushi places in Half Moon Bay, Sushi Main Street. I had my camera with me so I could capture images of the sunset before going to the restaurant. While walking along the Pacific Coastal Trail, I found this spot with the putting […]
Capitola is a small coastal town east of Santa Cruz, California, at the northern end of the Monterey Bay. Usually if you are on the pacific coast, you see the setting sun over the ocean. But the Capitola beach faces south east and not west. This means sun sets behind you. Lately we have one […]
Due to the lack of snow I spent a day at the beach instead of a day skiing. It is really strange to wear swim trunks in January in Northern California and not to be cold. I enjoyed it, but hopefully I wont get used to this! At sunset I visited Seacliff State Park. They […]
As it has been a very long time since my last post so I thought to show you two images from last night. With them I wish you a wonderful holiday season!
This morning I posted some images of a gorgeous sunset in Bandon, Oregon [link] and now we get the same treat tonight here in San Francisco! What a coincidence! I just stepped outside to capture the glowing read sky with the silhouette of the top Bernal Heights with its trees and antennas. What a start […]
Last year for Thanksgiving weekend, we made a trip to Portland, Oregon. While we barely stopped on the way there, we took the longer but very scenic coastal road on the way back to California. Our last stop before the border was in Bandon, where we enjoyed a gorgeous sunset. The timing was almost perfect. […]
A few weeks ago, we spent a weekend in Yosemite. In the morning we enjoyed the Fall Colors in the Yosemite Valley I talked about in a previous post (link), later in the day, we headed up to Glacier Point to enjoy the sunset. While the sun was setting, I noticed a patch of light on a […]
There is not that much to say… An other beautiful sunset here in San Francisco. Under a big sky, Twin Peaks is covered in a thick layer of fog through which the Sutro Tower antennas stick out.
