While visiting Los Angeles this past weekend, we made a day trip to San Diego and a stop here at La Jolla Beach where we spotted these famous sea lions. It was a pleasant surprise for us as we made the stop looking for some good landscape photo opps at sunset. We saw a large group of people surrounding this area and our first guess was that they were watching the surfers, so you can imagine our surprise when we walked up to see these sea lions who seemed comfortable with humans just a couple of feet away.
While I haven't taken any major trips in some time, it has been fun going through my old Iceland pictures. When I first got back from my trip I must have glossed over this one, but looking back it really captures what Iceland was like with the waterfalls, blue skies, mountain ranges and of course waterfalls.
After a few failed attempts at finding a good angle of the Chicago sunrise, I crossed over Morgan Street on my way to a UIC parking garage when I found a hole in the fence. This is the Eisenhower expressway from behind a chain link fence.
Today's shot is a long exposure taken from UIC. I used an ND filter and high f-stop to achieve about a 90 second exposure just before sunrise.
Today's shot was taken From Monroe Street next to Union Station.
Today's shot is a look at the Sears Tower, or Willis Tower, if you prefer it by its proper name . This was taken early Sunday morning before sunrise.
I didn't have the best lighting conditions this particular morning but I made the most of it and shot in the loop. This is the Chicago Board of trade shot with my fisheye lens.
This is the Benjamin Franklin Monument in Lincoln Park, captured early last Sunday morning. This particular shot is a 54 second long exposure.
Today's shot is another of the Curvaceous Wood Pavilion at the Lincoln Park Zoo, this time, not from its typical angle.
If you've been keeping up with my posts you've noticed that I've been throwing in a few Iceland shots here and there. This is Jokulsarlon Ice beach during sunrise, one of Iceland's famous black sand beaches.
