Great photos! especially that of the small boat with the blue lights behind the Odyle of San Francisco.

I gave Barry all of the photos I took, but many were not as good as I’d hoped so he selected some good ones.  What I didn’t factor in when I was steadying the camera on objects on the dock is that the boats and the dock are both moving, and not in sync.  That’s why the blue lights are streaked, but it does make an interesting effect.

The pelican was in the cabin on the Fulmar, the new research vessel for the Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary.

The middle two photos are two shots of one boat, taken without and with flash.

Next year I’ll try different camera settings and maybe I’ll be able to get usable photos with shorter exposure times.
