A Visit to San Diego

For the last four days, I was in La Jolla, CA, attending a Pediatric Radiology conference.  In the evenings and on days the conference was only 1/2 a day, I took the opportunity to photograph the area.  I discovered the beauty of Torrey Pines State Park.  I was also able to visit the San Diego zoo. In five hours, I probably covered only a third of what the zoo had to offer.  On the flight back, I was lucky enough to have a window seat not obscured by the airplane’s wing. Here are a few of my favorite images from the trip.  The last shot is an aerial view of Mt. Rainier and Mt. St. Helens. I hope you enjoy the photographs.

    How lucky you were to have both mountains visible on your flight. Can’t begin to tell you how much I enjoy your photography. Thank you for sharing.

      Great to hear from you, Pam! It was an unusually great flight. First I found out I was upgraded to first class for free, then I noticed the unobstructed view out the window! I was actually able to see Mt. Hood, Mt. Adams, and Mt. Shasta!

    Mahesh, Your first shot looks like I can reach in to the image and touch the landscape! Amazing! The second is incredible! You can look at this image forever and envision this as landscape on another planet! All of these images are amazing!!!

      Daniel, good to hear from you, bud! Ya, when I can devote more time to the business aspect of my photography, I’m definitely going to get an agent.

    WOW, I sat next to you on the plane and all I saw was haze. As I said, you inspired me photographically and cost me lots of $$$. I bought the D7000. Now I want the Olympus…

      Thanks for stopping by, Jennifer! By now you’re probably deep in Alaska. I hope the D7000 is working out for you. Let me know how you like it!
