La Jolla Sea Lions

date February 23, 2017 location La Jolla, CA comments 0 Comments

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.

Iceland Waterfalls

date February 10, 2017 location Iceland comments 0 Comments

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.

I-290 Through the Fence

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.
