I have had a week in San Diego and spent most of my evenings moving from spot to spot along the coast to take advantage of the beautiful Pacific sunsets and other natural wonders. I have many raw images to take home and work on so that I can choose favorites and finalize them for display. On the road I don't have my calibrated monitor and more advanced editing tools, but already I am excited about some of the images captured. A full gallery of the California Coast photos can be found by clicking here.
The rocky coastline of La Jolla's Scripps Park glows in the last bit of sunlight.
The water smashes against the rocks in the tide pools at Point Loma.
A view from the base of Sunset Cliffs. It was a bit of an adventure to get on this spot. I followed some surfers past the "danger, do not enter" barriers and down a narrow but well trodden path. The trail, which had many steep dropoffs along the way, poured out onto a ledge which led to another 20 foot drop. A boulder had a rope tied around it and draped down the cliff. I rappel-scrambled my way to the base and found myself on a beautiful secluded beach. I am sure that I presented an odd sight to the few people there, I was dressed for photography and not the beach. No matter, the sunset was spectacular and well worth the effort.
The seals! They have taken over Children's Pool Beach in La Jolla. The cliff-caves of La Jolla. I ran into a photographer at Children's Beach and said I would put this one up on my blog so she would not have to hike all the way up there. If that photographer happens upon this page send me an e-mail so we can compare shots! firstname.lastname@example.org
And finally, a classy shot of the San Diego cityscape. I headed over to Coronado to set up for the sunset and was not disappointed by the view.
I have many more great sunset photos- I will hold them back for now and drop them out from time to time so they continue to have an impact. No matter how many times I see the sun set the photos are always unique. Next up- more San Diego wildlife and cityscapes along with info on the Art on the Avenue show in Alexandria that will be featuring some of my fine art photography.
