I was inspired by Kim Leuenberger’s awesome macro photography series: Traveling Cars Adventures. So today, with my little tin car in hand, I headed to Rodeo beach to shoot some traveling car adventures myself. The wind was completely out of control!1
My tripod was much too high to frame the shot I wanted—macros that included background of the… 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
We frequently walk along the breakwater in the evenings after dinner out. It’s our “us” time—a quiet time in a beautiful area, frequently all alone with the gentle surf, the clanking tack of the sailboats, the barking seals and the caws of the seagulls. Sometimes we get to hear the fog horns in the area as well.
This particular walk… Continue reading
I blogged before about the death-defying adventure that was shooting this pano. No, I’m not kidding. (Check out the post about the first attempt to shoot this pano.)
A few hours later, after the wind seemed a little less ferocious but even colder, and even though the light was quickly fading, I decided to give it a second go, and… Continue reading
We met friends for breakfast in the hotel and then headed out the the Grand Canyon Visitors’ Center on the south rim near Tusayan. I asked the ranger what was a “must do” for someone who only had today in the park. He said to drive the Hermit Road and stop as often as desired because it was littered with… Continue reading
It happens really quickly!
I was “camped out” atop Hawk Hill, determined I was going to shoot a time lapse of the fog burning off the Golden Gate Bridge, the bay, and the city. The whole area was completely socked in with dense, fast moving fog. Torrents of fog were moving in over my head and down on top of… Continue reading
I’m not too sure how much rain fell over the past 3 days, but it seemed to be of Biblical proportions. One of our friends posted that his dog, Madison, was upset she wasn’t going to be allowed on the arc because she had been neutered.
When the rain is pounding, you can hardly hear anything in the house but… Continue reading
The past two days have been hotter than blazes here! I mean, for real hot—not our usual 72º hot! I’m talking about 94 and 95º! This is an outrage!
The house has air conditioning, a rarity in these parts, but none in my office. I’ve been melting! I have moved the 5 fans and blown the cool air from the… Continue reading
Today the fog came blasting in from the Pacific Ocean. I walked down to Fort Baker to shoot and found the wind so strong out on the jetty that I seriously thought if it got any worse, I would have to get down on my hands and knees and crawl back to the car. But when I turned and walked… Continue reading
The weather here in Sausalito is much different from Manhattan Beach! After a month of no rain, we just had a rain storm to end all rain storms. For two days it rained furiously, and yesterday and this morning the wind has been ferocious! Literally blowing the rain sideways and up steep hills, the wind blew over a very heavy… Continue reading
