Space Shuttle flies on top of 747 over crowd at Moffett

The space shuttle Endeavour flies its final flight over Moffett Field as a large crowed assembles on the airfield to bid it goodbye. Necessity required that the crowd be shot first, before the shuttle arrived, and it surprised us by coming from behind Hanagar One (the skeleton) so the crowd is looking down the runway, expecting it to come on that path.

Helicopter over Silicon Valley, 2010

This panoarama of Silicon Valley was shot in 2002 from a helicopter 1500 feet over soutwest Sunnyvale, and shows a 360 degree view. Still some flaws since chopper panoramics are new and difficult. This is long before Apple Park or other recent landmarks.

San Jose and Stevens Creek

Not a panorama, but a shot taken during my efforts to get a good Silicon Valley panorama. This shot however has been enhanced to remove the haze, to show what San Jose would look like if there were no pollution. Next winter, I will shoot a decent panorama like this.

San Jose from the eastern Foothills

This giant image was taken with Fuji Velvia from the top of Quimby Road at noon during the winter green season. It shows all of Silicon Valley. You can even see San Francisco, over 50 miles away, through the haze on the far right of the picture.

San Jose from roof of Hilton

All of downtown San Jose, from the top of the Hilton. This view doesn't really exist, as I had to move around the hotel and play some tricks.
