Dripping Rock

The limestone rocks of Phang Nga Bay have two neat party tricks. They can both stick sharply out of the water and also look like they are dripping back into the water as they are eroded away by the bright green water below.

Sunstar

In Oakland, sometimes the stars show themselves during the day.

Marin Sunset

Marin has many great spots to catch a sunset. From here you are up above the Golden Gate Bridge, and get a big view of the bay before you with San Francisco in the background. This was a perfect night, with clear weather and just a few wispy clouds to light up the sky.

Looking Both Ways

Traffic is stopped, time for a quick check both ways and then back to enjoying the music and taking in the sunset.

The Hill and the Tree

I did a quick trip up this hill with a friend to make it to this spot just in time for the last bit of sunset. The sky over the bay was beautiful, but one tree sticking out on its own really stood out for me.

Last Light

Some say sunset is the best, but for those with some patience to wait 25 seconds for a long exposure, the time just after sunset can really let the city lights shine.

Sausalito from the Bay

At first I was bummed I was getting off the water before sunset, but then the sun broke through the clouds right over Sausalito and lit up the harbor with bright yellow rays of light.

Happy New Year!

This epic sunrise is a great way to kick off a happy new year! It was a cold morning to be out at Emerald Bay but the effort paid off big time with this colorful sunrise! Here’s to all of our efforts bringing great rewards in the year ahead!

Happy New Year!


Christmas Angel

I harnessed some Christmas energy and experimented a bit to get this shot. When taking pictures of Christmas lights this year, I found that out of focus lights created a much more dramatic effect by making the light much larger. When I saw these holiday decorations in my neighborhood, I decided to take photos both in and out of focus. By re-focusing at different spots I was able to highlight the shape of the lights. The result is really dreamy on the edges, while at the same time pulling your attention to the angel in the center. Merry Christmas!

Panoramic Seattle

They call it the Emerald City, but on this night the sky turned all of Seattle purple and blue just as the sun was disappearing! It took me quite a while to get this panorama shooting 19 individual frames handheld and working around window glare, and I really like how it turned out. A combination of good light and clouds like this makes up for all the times I’ve lugged my camera around and the weather didn’t cooperate.
