Above It All

Melanie and I went out last night to watch the sunset. She watched the sunset and looked at her phone and I snapped pictures continuously. It was a truly magical fog night to be up in Berkeley Hills.

New Years Tradition

Second year in a row I’ve pointed my camera towards a San Francisco cityscape on New Years Day. This year was even better than the last. I think I’m going to make this a new tradition.

Re-Editing

Sometimes a quick re-edit breathes new life into something you knew you liked, but never felt like publishing. Processed in Nik Analog Efex Pro, which I’m liking a lot more than I thought I would.

Two Cities

A friend once told me that I had it better living in Oakland, because when I go out I get to look at San Francisco but when he goes out he has to look at Oakland. He may be right, but in this picture I got a chance to look at both as well as the beautiful curves of Highway 24.

Bridge to Nowhere

I just love the Berkeley Pier ruins. It provides an excellent foreground to an excellent view of the city.

Wide Angle

I shot this with my Tamron wide angle for my crop frame. Since I went to the D600 I haven’t had a wide angle, but I just got in a 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5 and I’m very excited to get out and shoot with it. So awesome to have a wide angle on my full frame!via Flickr http://flic.kr/p/gXbJPR


Traffic Killed the Sunset

Yesterday evening was shaping up to be a fantastic sunset, but when I got to Fort Baker, I didn’t have the view I was looking for. I headed back towards the bridge to go to Baker Beach, but there was a reck, I lost 20 minutes waiting to get on the bridge, and all the best light. I’ll take this as a consolation prize though. Beautiful evening at Fort Baker.via Flickr http://flic.kr/p/gKEt89


Sydney Once Again

I was back in Sydney last week. This sunset was a bit more spectacular than the last one I witnessed from this location. Alas they had the area gated off to get out to where the rocks are, so the foreground is limited to some still water from the long exposure.via Flickr http://flic.kr/p/gEKGCp


Red Sea

I love the reflections of the bridge on the water. From the wayback file, December of last year. I need to go back to Fort Baker again, it’s been a while.via Flickr http://flic.kr/p/fT4Vfu
