Last Night’s Sunset

I’ve witnessed many spectacular sunsets since living in Kansas, but last night I just happened to be out and about with my Nikon at just the right time. I drove my car down a long dirt road, hoping to get some unobstructed shots. Luckily, I chose well! While last night’s sunset wasn’t as jaw-dropping as […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Rise/Set

This week’s Photo Challenge is Rise/Set… we’re asked to showcase sunrise or sunset. I chose two sunsets, both taken in Southern California, featuring silhouettes. The beach picture was taken near Newport Beach Pier. The city skyline was taken from the parking structure rooftop at The Grove, a beautiful, outdoors shopping center on the west side […]

Brrrr-isk Walk on the Pier

Photos taken using my iPhone while on a very chilly, spontaneous visit to the Seal Beach Pier a few evenings ago. I was pleasantly surprised seeing the sand art, impressed by the precision required to create it! ~SueBee

Newport Beach Pier as Subject

On the sand at sunset, photographing a rugged old pier jutting into a silky, pearlescent ocean… there were several of us with the same idea! These photos were taken at Newport Beach this past Friday after I was off work. ~SueBee

Today’s Sunset at Newport Beach

As I left the office today, worn out from a long workweek, I decided on a drive to Balboa Island, the opposite direction of my home in Orange. I crossed the bridge to the island, parked my little truck, walked to the ferry, hopped on, paid the $1.00 fee, rode over to Newport Beach Peninsula, and meandered down to the beach. The air […]

Malibu Sunset

This scene was the backdrop to a fabulous holiday cocktail party yesterday afternoon, hosted by dear friends at their hillside Malibu home. Imagine having that view from your yard! I used my iPhone to capture this photo in panorama mode. I don’t generally use anything other than the Nikon for photos on our blog, but thought I’d […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

Our entry may require glasses or magnifier to see the helicopter silhouette in the clouds! This shot was taken from the rooftop of The Grove shopping center parking garage, in West Los Angeles. I used the sunset setting on my Nikon 5100, which added the red color, although the sunset was spectacular to begin with. […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer Lovin’

Teens lovin’ that summer is a comin’… Rejoicing in the sunset of school work, the sunrise of carefree beach days, joy spreading as colors in the sky. ~SueBee Living in a land of nearly eternal summer, Southern California, I took a twist on this week’s theme and jumped outside of myself to include the Summer Lovin’ exuberance of these […]

“Sky on Fire”

While driving home from Anza Borrego, the sky looked like it was on fire! Had to capture a pic! Amazing how gorgeous sunsets look with rain clouds in the sky. ~Kat (pic by Kat)

Mighty Trees

Went camping in Big Bear with Cam and his wonderful family a little while back…what a fantastic trip, and an absolutely stunning place to camp! We stayed at Hanna Flats Campground, right in the middle of the forest…massive trees surrounding us, and tons of hiking trails to explore. I couldn’t help taking several pics of […]

“Pacific Ocean Gold”

California, nicknamed The Golden State, could have been named for this golden sun, soon to be sliding gracefully into the Pacific Ocean. Today’s “Foto Fix” was taken off the coast of Corona Del Mar, from one of my favorite clifftop outlooks, and just down the street from my favorite tavern. By the way, that’s Catalina […]

“A Brilliant Sunset over L.A.”

Spectacular colors, using the sunset filter on my Nikon, looking west from rooftop of the parking structure at The Grove, 3rd and Fairfax. I find these photos reminiscent of Arizona’s seguaro cactus silhouetted against the setting sun. Since acquiring my first “real camera” last Christmas, a Nikon D5100 with turbo lens, I’ll tell you, reviewing […]

“Homeward, Whisper”

My parents had a small sailboat before my older brother and I were born. In fact, they put off having kids until their mid 30s, choosing to have adventures first. (Ha! Little did they know how much adventure kids can bring to life.) But, their plans were a good thing because sadly dad never made […]
