One Path

Sometimes in life we are forced down one path, whether we like it or not more often than not its too late to turn around and we must continue what we had already started. What awaits us around the corner is the unknown, and with uncertainty comes adventure. (more…)

Reflection in the sand

Taken at La Jolla Shores


Life is all about choices, in this particular case I was hiking in Torrey Pines State Reserve and I came across a fork in the road; I had the choice to go left (which is the trail that I know) or go right and explore a brand new trail. I chose the right path and this shot was taken as I made that decision. It was an interesting choice as my 30 minute hike around sunset ended up being well over an hour; it wasn’t that bad except for the fact that I was carrying roughly 7 lbs of equipment on me and I had no water and it was getting dark so any sound that came of the bushes didn’t give me that comforting feeling.

La Jolla Cove Sunset

La Jolla Cove Sunset, a photo by 2 Rivers Photos on Flickr.

Canon EOS 5D MkII, EF16-35 f/2.8L II @ 26mm, f/2.8, ISO 200

I ended up walking around UCSD’s campus instead and it turned out quite a good shooting opportunity. Goes to show that when one door of opportunity closes there just another one right around the corner full of other opportunities 🙂

I’ll post more shots from today in a future entry…

The image that I was trying to redo:
