October 5, 2020 — San Francisco Bay, California The fog deck hung fully over the bay. Nothing more to say except that this could have been taken at 900 feet — which it was — or 30,000 feet. It would’ve looked the same either way. (Nikon D500, Tamron 100–400mm f/4.5–6.3 Di VC USD. RAW processing in DxO PhotoLab 3.3; Editing in Adobe Photoshop.) PS — I’m getting disentangled from other activities and I shall return to […]

July 12, 2020 — Marin County Headlands, California; September 24, 2020 — My Office …realized. I woke up at 4 a.m. with a different treatment of an ICM image from a previous shoot in mind. I went back to sleep with a smile in my face. A few hours later, not even halfway through my first cup of coffee, there it was. And here it is. Despite what it says below, this was all done […]

July 12, 2020 — Marin County Headlands, California I did a lot of ICM pans while waiting for the comet NEOWISE to appear over Mount Tamalpais on July 12. The RAW file of this shot had been sitting in archives since then, several times passed over as an also-ran. Today I saw it with new eyes. It had potential. Every single element took part in the slow pixel dance, changing color, tone, and contrast relationships […]

February 9, 2020 — East Bay Hills, California The San Francisco Bay Area abounds with breathtaking views. The views from the hills across the Bay from San Francisco are among the best — looking straight back across the Bay. The Golden Gate Bridge is an impressive feat of engineering and construction. When it was built in 1937, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world. It has since been surpassed, but the main span […]

January 25, 2020 — Kirkjufellsfoss, Snaefellsjökull Peninsula, Iceland Ten minutes before sunrise. No place does blue hour like Iceland. And it’s amazing how much a tripod with a five-pound camera can act like a sail in a strong wind. (Nikon D850, Tamron SP 24–70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2.

January 26, 2020 — Jökulsárlón, South Coast, Iceland Taken about a half-hour before the image in yesterday’s post — looking north, rather than east. The clouds and mist were in constant motion. Indeed, much of the time the mountains were obscured by clouds. My February 15 post shows one dramatic moment. The image above shows a pause in the turmoil of the cloudy cauldron. Still wondering if JMW Turner would’ve liked Pink Floyd. (Nikon D850, […]
