Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

Big Rock, La Jolla Cove, La Jollla, San Diego, silhouette, sunset, Weekly Photo Challenge, Negative Tide Pools

Here is a silhouette from the negative tide pools at La Jolla Cove from last Wednesday. Little did we know we had a spectacular sunset in store for us that day, I could’ve sworn I overheard someone mention that you always get amazing sunsets when you have negative tides! Can anyone confirm if this is a fact or myth?


Offbeat Brewing Company

Another collage from our day touring the micro breweries of North County San Diego. This is a brand new brewery (Offbeat Brewing Company)that had just opened up a few weeks before our visit; at the time they were only offering four kinds of beer! Considering how new the place is, I offered to give my images to one of the owners so if they ever use it its with my consent 🙂 (for those that are aware of my story with the Marriot)

Watching the show

Last night’s sunset was epic! Nature put on quite a show; within a span of half an hour the sky changed so many colors, it was incredible. A time-lapse would’ve been a lot more appropriate than this HDR but this was towards the last fifteen minutes where the sky went from yellow to orange to red. Here is an an instagram picture that I took with my phone without applying any filters about 10 minutes after taking the brackets above. Just look at all these people just staring the sunset, there were so many more above from (more…)


Setting up the shot

HDR, La Jolla, La Jolla Shores, Landscape, San Diego, sunset, Pacific Ocean

I haven’t done a sunset shot in a long time, at least it feels like it to me. This was this past Saturday’s sunset at La Jolla shores, I took a stroll down to the beach just to enjoy the warm days as they haven’t left Southern California yet. I was wrapping up my shots for the day and I saw this photographer working with a couple and trying to setup the shot for them; I decided to take a picture of them 🙂

Fermentation Tank

This is the fermentation tank right outside the Lost Abbey, which is a micro brewery in North County San Diego. I could’ve sworn that my friend said that its actually in use but I think he was pulling a prank on me, I don’t see anything connecting to it to the main structure but then again what do I know about making beers!


Balboa Park Activity Center

I really wanted to do an HDR of this image and I actually started out by doing so but after looking at what was really going on I didn’t think it was fitting or at least I didn’t like it. The place looks deserted and hasn’t been used in quite some time, the sign that says “Balboa Park Activity Center” has gunk on it! I thought the monochrome was more fitting for the scene.


Back to the grind

The sign of the operating hours at the Stone Brewing company. Luckily the majority of us don’t have to work 11 hour days, but its Monday and for most its time to get back to the grind. Enjoy the working week 🙂


Beer Bottles

Spent yesterday touring the micro breweries in San Diego’s North County with a friend of mine; all in all we stopped at four different breweries and we took a tour at the last one. This particular image is of the layout of the “store” at the Lost Abbey which was our second stop. At the end I found it to be quite an informative day for me about the beer making process and what makes the flavours in them. Enjoy the last day of the weekend 🙂


Guanacos

A picture of a Guanaco at the San Diego Zoo. Guanacos look very much like llamas and for me the best way to distinguish between them is that llamas have much thicker fur, much more sheep like than the Guanacos.


Silver Bullet

I shot this plane landing into Lindbergh International Airport (San Diego) and silver bullet is about the only thing I can think off to name it 🙂


Vacation Rentals

Based on the sign I’m assuming this is a leasing office for vacation rentals, it was quite an interesting structure in the heart of Pacific Beach. With the end of the summer holidays I’m sure they are going to see a dip in business, I know it will be easier to park around the beaches in a couple of weeks 🙂


Between the trees

Yet another sunset image from San Diego, this one was taken in Mission bay where the sun was setting right in between the trees. Obviously my placement played in role in that but who’s keeping track 🙂
