San Diego Skyline from Coronnado January 3, 2009

I’m so excited that I got to stop with Heather and my friend Kyle to enjoy the SD skyline and capture this night cityscape!
I’ve yet to take the NYC skyline at night and I live only 45 minutes away – so haven’t this is a real treat!

La Jolla Cove January 2, 2009

On my birthday we headed to San Diego (my favorite place from my excursions with Heather) and we stopped at La Jolla Cove right after sunset.
It was so beautiful to see in person and I had to keep reminding myself to see with my EYES and not JUST through the viewfinder of my camera.
I had no tripod with me so I made use of the cement walls or something steady wherever I could find something.

Santa Rosa Plateau – Panoramic December 26, 2008

On the day that Heather & I did our Strobist shoot (mentioned in the previous post) in the Santa Rose Plateau, I had a minute in between so I shot a few photos (with the intention of doing a panoramic) before the sun set completely.

39400 CLINTON KEITH RD. MURRIETA CA.

The Santa Rosa Plateau Ecological Reserve is located at the southern end of the Santa Ana Mountains in southwest Riverside County, near the city of Murrieta.

The Reserve consists of 8,300 acres and protects unique ecosystems like Engelmann oak woodlands, riparian wetlands, coastal sage scrub, chaparral, bunchgrass prairie and vernal pools.

Visitors to the Reserve can enjoy the oldest standing structures in Riverside County that once served as bunkhouses for cowboys dating back to 1846. These two adobe structures remain shaded by a 400 year old tree and separated by a relaxing, one-of-a-kind, picnic area.
