A Trail On the Edge

Rocky Mountain National Park has a lot to offer hikers as summer turns into fall. This section of the Fern Lake Trail wraps itself into a little canyon to perfectly frame the mountains in front of you.

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.

The Falls Below the Bridge

This angle of Christine Falls is not the one you normally see. I took this from the bridge very close to the falls, where the water drops straight down below you only a few feet away. There is a viewpoint down the road, but I decided to get up to the edge of the bridge, and shoot it top to bottom in a vertical panorama. This distorts the height of the falls and makes it feel like it is snaking through the rocks in front of you.

Cities and Clouds

I’m a sucker for cities. I’m a sucker for clouds. Lisbon is a great city, and was nice enough to provide clouds so you better believe I was out there with my camera! I started most nights on our hotel rooftop, and was able to get this shot without even leaving our temporary home!

A Fine City for Photography

We only spent a short time in Porto, so I wanted to make the most of it. One night I crossed the bridge and made it to the top of the hill after sundown for a panoramic shot of the entire city. You can see it all here, from the oldest parts of town to the near side of the river which is busy with port tasting all day. What you can also see, if you look very closely, are my friends enjoying a lovely meal on the far side of the river. I assumed everything in Europe was open until very late, but by the time I made it down to the restaurants everything was closed. I didn’t get a good dinner, but I got this photo!

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.

From There to Here

Hiking in Pinnacles National Park leads to many great views such as this panorama taken from the center of the park. The climb up here has some interesting steps carved in the rock along the way, and once you complete those you can look back on the trail that got you here in the center of the frame.

By Bridge, Tram or Subway…

…You can get from here to Manhattan in a hurry. This was taken from the exclusive rooftop of a friend’s apartment on Roosevelt Island looking towards Manhattan. The bright lights may look peaceful from here, but the buzz of the city is just across the river.

Crazy Skies Over Clark Lake

Normally I’d worry that clouds like these meant a storm was coming. After a day of swimming and boating on the lake, I wasn’t concerned that this crazy sky would ruin the day as we’d already had our fun.

757 ft.

The San Francisco Bay as seen from 757 feet above sea level. Starting at Ayala Cove, first by bike and then by foot, I made my way to this point for a view of Tiburon and all that lies beyond. The view toward San Francisco was foggy, but this view toward Tiburon was very clear.
