Fleet Week Airshow in San Francisco

There’s something special about watching military jets at airshows. The powerful rumble of jet engines flying low above your head, the sheer speed, the skill of pilots flying in graceful formation one minute and doing body-crushing aerobatics the next. It was all present on Saturday during Fleet Week in San Francisco. Sitting atop the Pier 39 garage with my Nikon Df and 70-300mm lens, shutter set at 1/1000 sec., I captured the action and enjoyed a perfect day on The Bay.

One of my favorite places to take out-of-town visitors to dinner is Sutro’s at the Cliff House. Yes, the food is great. But with the restaurant perched atop the cliffs overlooking San Francisco’s Ocean Beach, the views and sunsets are unforgettable. Last night was no exception.

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!

I captured this image in San Francisco’s Golden Gate National Cemetery in 2002. I recall walking among the tombstones noting that so many had died in Vietnam, and the majority were still teenagers when they were laid to rest here.

Few places on earth match the serenity that Mendocino’s northern California coastline offers. I’m feeling its gravitational pull — must return there soon.
