Watching America’s Cup races on the San Francisco Bay

This week I had an opportunity to go out onto San Francisco’s bay to watch from up-close the America’s Cup Louis Vuitton Cup finals. The Louis Vuitton Cup finals are a competition to determine which boat will sail against the defending champion Oracle USA team for the 2013 America’s Cup. This finals competition is between Italy’s Luna Rossa and the Emirates New Zealand teams. New Zealand is the clear winner with a substantially faster boat. But watching these works of art and technological prowess race across the beautiful San Francisco Bay is breathtaking.

A night photographing the Perseid meteor shower

On Monday night we drove high up into the hills of Los Altos to catch a glimpse of 2013’s Perseid meteor shower. The view of the South Bay was spectacular on an unusually warm August night. Although I captured the view, the Perseids chose not to shower on us that night 😦

After shooting 135 25-second exposures, this single lonely streak in the sky was all I got. Better luck next year. It was still fun!
