Photo Of The Day : “Top Of The Mark”

I know I haven’t had many “Photo Of The Day” posts lately. This hotel project has been kicking my butt hard. 8-12 hours of straight shooting per day, not including any processing! As stressful as it can be, every day I look at an amazing view like this, and I am quickly reminded that I have THE BEST JOB IN THE WORLD! This is taken from the “Top Of The Mark” restaurant and bar, on the top level of the Mark Hopkins hotel in San Francisco, California

Photo Of The Day “Super Moon”

So, weeks ago, I hear the news about the “Super Moon” on March 19th, 2011, which is the closet full moon to the earth in 18 years. This means that the moon should appear bigger, brighter, and more detailed. Well, it should everywhere but in Northern California, where we are in the midst of what is supposed to be almost 2 weeks of relentless storms. The night of the super moon was especially bad. Rain driven sideways because of winds that felt to be about 100 miles per hour. It was insane. But at about 3 AM, I went outside, and amazingly there was a break in the clouds. There was clouds coming in at a remarkably fast pace. I set up my tripod, and took a 30 second exposure. You can see the blurry palm trees being caused by swaying in the hurricane force winds. I am not gonna lie, I was a little worried about one of the palms breaking in half, crushing my car and myself in the wake.

Not the photo I was dreaming of when I heard about the Super Moon, but I think this came out kinda cool!

Photo Of The Day “The Bird Of Tiburon”

“The Bird Of Tiburon”

So, after hearing all week about the possibility of snow in San Francisco, the weekend came and went with not an of snow, rain, hail, sleet, or any kind of moisture for that matter. Yes, it got cold, but the skies were clear, and the wind was calm. This bird even found it nice enough to sit back and enjoy the view of San Francisco from the waterfront of Tiburon.

Oh, and believe it or not, there is a blimp in this photo.

Photo Of The Day: “Valley”

“Valley”

HDR Photograph of a hiking trail leading down Mount Tamalpias towards Mill Valley, California (Marin County)

Another oldie. This is from what I call my “rookie season” of HDR photography. I believe this was taken in 2007. This was taken hiking up the Hoo Koo E Koo Trail from Kentfied, California up to Mount Tamalpias. I have been told quite often that it looks a Casper David Friedrich or a Claud Lorraine painting!

This is an old photo. A couple of years I believe. Since I have been super busy with some photography projects I have to finish, I haven’t had much time for my “personal” photography. =( So I realized I had never made this a photo of the day. So, here it is!

I took this with a 400+mm focal length from downtown Tiburon CA.

Photo Of The Day : “Fireball Bridge”

The couple for the wedding I am shooting next week needed some last minute photographs, primarily one to print and display at their post ceremony reception. So as the ever so helpful photographer I am, I offered to help take a new one and expedite it. Since it was last minute, I just decided to take them up to the Marin Headlands and get the standard couple over the bridge photograph, although I think these are much better. I may post one later!

But while up there, the sun was setting and the sky was phenomenal. A typical Bay Area winter day. So I decided to work for myself for a split second, and captured this 5 exposure HDR.

99.9% of the time, I would NEVER EVER post a photo taken with my iPhone. But I took this sunset shot from a boat in the middle of the bay in celebration of my buddies birthday and I thought it came out great. Another case of being in the right place at the right time!

Daily Photo “Rodeo Bridge”

Just another great winter sunset at Rodeo Beach in Sausalito, California. It still amazes me how I live so close to probably the best spot in the bay area to photograph the sunset. It also amazes me that I was never standing on the end of this bridge at this point of the sunset. But I found myself in this very location this day, so I set up, somehow kept Rocky at bay and out of the frame, and snapped!

 


Photo Of The Day: “December Sunset”

It was about 2:00 PM. I could see the clouds in the sky. They were looking perfect. I knew this would be a great sunset. And with rain on the forcast for the next couple of days, I knew I had to get out to Rodeo Beach in Sausalito. I finished some work and headed out. I thought I was going to be too late as I could see the sun falling fast during my drive. It turns out, it was the perfect time! There was about 4 or 5 other photographers there as well. One being an amazing photographer, who I admire very much! Check Gary Yost out at www.yostopia.com
