Photo Of The Day: “Jailed City…….with a Sailboat!”

“Jailed City…….with a Sailboat!”

This may look very similar to another photo I have buried here in my Landscape Photography Portfolio. It is called “Jailed City” You can see it here

I took that a couple of years ago. Anyway, last week, I decided to revisit Tiburon, California to take some new photos. The water, clouds and the sky looked VERY alike the day I took “Jailed City” When I saw this sailboat coming from stage left, I decided to try to recreate that photo, but this time, with a nice, happy sailboat blocking Alcatraz Prison!

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.

Daily Photo: “The James Bond Yacht”

It takes a couple different factors to be able to get good photographs. Good DSLR, Better Lenses, Good Photographer’s Eye, Motivation, etc. But more so than ANY of these, most great photos (especially anything with moving parts) involves alot of luck. Which I had alot of for this shot!

This is the $300 million dollar, 390 foot yacht owned by the Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko. It was spotted anchored off the coast of Sausalito, in perfect view of the thousands of tourists who stroll down Bridgeway on a daily basis.

On Friday, I drove down to Sausalito to try to get some shots of the yacht before it took off for it’s next exotic destination. Of course, it was gray and foggy. Another typical San Francisco summer day! After snapping some HDRs of the massive sea vessel from different angles and focal length, I noticed the billionaire’s personal helicopter coming in fast for a landing! I quickly adjusted my settings and my tripod, and snapped this photo seconds before the copter was touched down for good. It wasn’t until after I looked on my viewfinder did I notice the “Adventure Cat” sailboat perfectly centered in front of the yacht, with all the occupants in awe over what they were seeing. Alcatraz on the right side of the frame was an added bonus!

Here is an article from the WSJ about the yacht.
