So, what could be better than a 4k time lapse of the fog as seen from just below the West Peak of Mount Tamalpais? This is about an hour of time compressed into 40 seconds. So, while the fog and the clouds appeared stationery to the naked eye, they are actually very active over time. That amazing motion is quite… Continue reading
This past weekend I did another one of my treks1 up Mount Tamalpais. I love being up there, especially when the fog and clouds are doing their etherial dances. Yes, you can expect another time lapse soon!
I had positioned my tripod at the edge of a pullout on the side of the road–a pullout with a stunning view. An… Continue reading
I spent yesterday hanging out around Mount Tamalpais, Muir Woods, Muir Beach, and the Muir Beach Overlook. I was shooting my very first 360º hyper lapse1 and some time-lapse of the sunset. Regrettably, the sunset was a total bust because the marine layer was so thick. But, I had a couple of unexpected and interesting encounters.
First, below is the… Continue reading
I was interested in exploring shooting anamorphic video with the iPhone 6s+1. In fact, I was interested in seeing how far I could push video with the iPhone generally: nighttime, directly into the sun, etc. I also wanted to try mixing some 360º footage into the my little project to see if significantly changing perspective in a normal “flat” video… Continue reading
O dear! Today was so busy, I almost forgot! I’m getting my Day 5 photo posted just before midnight!
I chose something entirely different: a partial panorama in that this photo is really many photos stitched together spanning about a 180º view. The actual completed image is over 25,000 pixels wide by over 3,000 pixels tall and can be enlarged… Continue reading
Last Thursday I had barely landed at SFO when I was once again reminded of some of the many reasons I love this little spot on earth, which I fondly refer to as the birthplace of my soul.
The air was brisk–with even something of a bite in it. The humidity felt perfect to me. The “always on” breeze from… Continue reading
A week ago today I was hunkered down on the west peak of Mount Tamalpais. I felt as though I were on top of the world because the wind was blasting dense fog straight toward me, just barely over my head. I could reach up and almost touch this ceiling of fog. Coming from the Pacific Ocean, the rapidly moving… Continue reading
Here is the first of two panos I’ll post from my trip this week up to west peak Mount Tamalpais. The clouds had all but cleared, and you can see for miles! It was gorgeous!
Be sure to also check out my other posts about this half day adventure up the mountain:

I recently learned about the practice of speed biking—where cyclists compete to travel challenging courses as fast as possible, and they post their times on competition websites. Much to my displeasure, Sausalito is part of such a course: Sausalito bicycle speed racing!
Serious athletes, cyclists, come blasting down the incredibly steep hills from the Golden Gate Bridge or even from… 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
