Been busy shooting closer to home and refining a few different techniques for HDR images. Here are a few shots from around San Diego as I get ready for a trip to Death Valley.
First up are some photographs taken at Torrey Pines State Reserve. The weather was nice, but I had hopes for a better sunset. I was reminded rather sternly that hanging near the sides of the sandstone cliffs is a big “no no” if I wanted to see another year.
Here is a different view of a nearby gliderport. From what I understand they get a good view of the nude beach below (although it was a little chilly for that).
A solitary hawk was sitting on was of the more well known trees at Torrey Pine.
Before the sun drifted behind some clouds, the cliffs glowed.
I also got lucky (after being yelled at) and captured one of the many crows as it cruised in front of the evening clouds.
Finally, just as the sun was setting I grabbed this mellow evening shot. This was taken with the 14mm so there is a lot going on in the image.
It’s amazing how many photographic opportunities are in my own back yard. I’ll post some new more “urban” shots later.
