Making a Fog Timelapse
We went hiking on Mount Tamalpais this past weekend, twice, actually: both Saturday and Sunday. Saturday was especially interesting because we had intense fog (the marine layer) down below us and an overcast sky above us. The motion of the clouds and fog was fantastic.
Having anticipated this, I had brought a tripod to shoot a… Continue reading
He was standing, lit by the golden sun setting over the ocean, atop the ledge next to the wooden stairs down to the ocean beach. He held a sheathed, sword-like baton that he withdrew with a practiced arc, opening the dripping baton to catch the gentle ocean breeze, forming a large bubble.
As the giant bubble was born, he blew… Continue reading
For your viewing pleasure: A video from the photos and video I shot with my phone this week while out and about. Video compiled with the iOS app, Replay.
(This video features a guest appearance by Conrad the Kat, delicately negotiated with his manager.)… Continue reading
I wanted to do something a little bit different with this time lapse of the fog blasting through the Golden Gate; so, I decided to make a time lapse composite: Room with a View.
I shot a picture of the view from the living room. It was bright outside; so, it wasn’t possible to expose for both the outside and… Continue reading
I had to get to the top of the west peak of Mount Tamalpais as quickly as possible. The weather conditions looked as though they could be an interesting subject for shooting: time lapse, photos, and panos. The dark clouds were blasting in from the north Pacific Ocean. They hung low in the sky—just above the mountain’s peaks.
When I… Continue reading
This past weekend was spent romping around the Headlands. Saturday we took an on-site class in the geology of Point Bonita followed by working at the lighthouse. Since the weather was gorgeous, we had over 500 visitors. On Sunday we went back and roamed to the edge of the coast. I shot several experimental pictures of Steve at different forts.… Continue reading
Today we went east, toward to bridge and away from the ocean. We walked over 15,000 steps, went up/down the equivalent of 22 flights of stairs, and encountered a “Closed Trail” sign that had a large notice: “People have fallen to their deaths from this trail. Keep Out!” We didn’t go that way!
The Eagle Point Labyrinth is indeed an… Continue reading
Having lived here for 5 months, I’m finding the small town of Sausalito and the surrounding area to be a fascinating place to live. Manhattan Beach was very cookie cutter. Everybody was so much the same. Sausalito, filled with character and characters, is anything but!
A few weeks back I had the opportunity to attend a get together… Continue reading
Well, with the earthquake in the Pacific, I guess I shouldn’t ride my bike along the coast as we’re at a heightened alert for a possible tsunami. I frequently ride down by the ocean through an area that is labeled as a Tsunami Evacuation Area.
While unlikely, the Tsunami Emergency Information being distributed indicates that an earthquake in Alaska could… Continue reading
