A kind of magic

Thank you for visiting - ❤ with gratitude! Fave if you like it, add comments below, get beautiful HDR prints at


Tonight I went to a networking event at Vodafone in Redwood Shores, California. After the event I stopped at the nearby Oracle headquarters. The main Oracle buildings looking like giant hard disk drives. They have the Oracle Team USA 17 boat on display, which won the 33rd America's Cup. It is a trimaran with an overall length of 113-foot (34 m).


Does anybody recognize the title of this photo?


I processed a balanced HDR photo from two RAW exposures of 5 sec and 25 sec, respectively. To get a sharp shot I disabled image stabilization and autofocus, and used a self-timer to avoid camera shake.
