Serendipity on San Francisco Bay

Serendipity - San Francisco - 2015

Last Sunday I was out on San Francisco Bay on the Aeolus with Rob Theis and friends. We had a wonderful time sailing and watching the Fleet Week airshow.

Along the way, I captured this shot – and the boat is actually the Serendipity. Marvelous!

I was out on San Francisco Bay yesterday for the Fleet Week Air Show with the Marin Photography Club. Here’s a shot I took in between the air show flights – this lovely old sailing vessel with a huge American flag flying off the fantail.

This image was shot with my Canon 5D Mark II using the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 IS L lens. It was post-processed using Nik’s Silver Efex Pro 2 with a bit of selective color on the American flag – and a touch of blue toning overall.

If you ever have the opportunity to get out on the Bay for the Fleet Week events, do so! It was an incredible experience for me – and not just for the airplane pictures!
