Full Moon Rising over the San Diego City Skyline

By Full Moon

The full moon, rising at dusk over a view of downtown San Diego and its beautiful harbor front and city skyline, viewed from Point Loma, California. The building that is nicely lit in the center is the San Diego County Administration Building. I have recently made a nice series of new images of the San Diego city skyline and harbor, many featuring the rising full moon. Among them are several large, high resolution panoramas. I am posting them on my other website, Natural History Photography Blog. Cheers and thanks for looking.

Scripps Pier Perfect Solar Alignment at Sunset, La Jolla, California

By Landscape Astrophotography

Scripps Institution of Oceanography Research Pier in beautiful La Jolla, California, with the setting sun perfectly framed within the pier pilings.

This remarkable solar alignment occurs rarely, and is difficult to capture in a photograph since the weather is often overcast. This is what the perfect solar alignment through the SIO Pier pilings looks like — it is a spectacular sight! Contact me to inquire about a print for your home or office of this San Diego icon, captured at the peak moment of a rare celestial event. This image is available up to 54″ high x 36″ wide, presented on canvas, metal and traditional photographic substrates. Cheers, and thanks for looking!

What does this image have to do with astrophotography? Well, the sun is a star, which makes this an astrophotograph, albeit one taken during the day which is unusual for landscape astrophotographs. Cheers and thanks for looking!
