Sunset Serenade

f/4, ISO-100, 1/500 sec.

A clear, or cloudy day made all the difference in these shots. The thin cloud streaks across the sun makes this contrast photo my all-time favorite sun pic.

Palm Sun Day

f/8, ISO-100, 1/400 sec.

I’m always trying to capture that unique shot of the sunset. This method of framing the picture is one of my favorite techniques. The diffusion of light is a nice effect without having to use a filter.

Belle of the Bay

f/3.2, ISO-100, 1/60 sec.

Berthed at Mission Bay in San Diego, California the Bahia Belle is a turn-of-the-century, Mississippi-style sternwheeler.

The Belle of the Bay is a Victorian-styled paddlewheeler that takes passengers on nostalgic cruises across the waters of the world famous aquatic park.

The Belle, and her larger cousin, the William D. Evans, can be reserved for private events such as wedding receptions.

It’s a fun thing to do when on vacation in America’s Finest City.
