Photography at the San Diego Zoo

My boyfriend Cam and I visited the San Diego Zoo again recently, and ended up buying an annual membership! What’s awesome about the membership, is we’re given access to both the Zoo and the Safari Park in Escondido anytime, all year round! This time around, we visited specifically to see the Koalas and Pandas that […]

Bird Gathering

Went out ‘n about exploring this past weekend, in search of new places to snap pics! Came across Irvine Lake in Santiago Canyon…wow! Gorgeous blue lake surrounded by hills and marsh-like grasses. Absolutely stunning! And the most mind-boggling thing about the whole place, is the number of white and grey cranes just hanging out in […]

Camping in Anza-Borrego – Day 2

Day 1, as described in my article “Camping in Anza Borrego,” was fantastic…great hikes, amazing campground…awesomeness 🙂 Day 2 of hiking led us to a wonderful trail called Palm Canyon Trail.

We camped at Borrego Palm Canyon Campground…an immaculate campground with drinking water, full bathrooms, and showers! The view surrounding our site was absolutely stunning, especially as the sun was rising! […]

The Hidden Zoo

Spontaneously went out with a friend one day last week, and discovered the absolutely beautiful Irvine Regional Park. Despite all of my exploring in the area, I’d never heard about this hidden gem before. It’s home to a railroad, horseback riding, hiking, kayaking, and a zoo! The zoo at this park is very small, and […]

Monkeying Around!

Took a spontaneous trip to the Santa Ana Zoo today. According to their website, as a requirement of the zoo’s founder Joseph Prentice, there are 50 monkeys on the grounds at all time! Unfortunately, I was unable to capture pictures of ALL 50, but I did get a few shots 🙂 Monkeys have always been […]

Lions and Tigers and Bears, oh my!

To celebrate our Anniversary, my boyfriend Cam and I went to the San Diego Zoo to snap a few pics…and by a few, only 1,600 combined 😉 But really, when you’re surrounded by so many amazing animals, and have a turbo lens, how could you take less?! What a place! I haven’t been since I […]

“Fearless”

Courage, guts, and a “you won’t beat me” attitude came to my mind while watching this seagull hold his ground (sand) as a “giant” wave loomed behind him, the first of several that he outsmarted. Yeah, maybe he was clever enough, or had experience enough, to know where the wave would crash and that he’d be safe, […]

“What? You talkin’ to me??”

Africa? No, San Diego Zoo Safari Park! Situated just a bit north of San Diego and inland from Escondido, is our own African paradise. It’s spectacular, especially on a cooler day when the trails are easy to walk, and the animals are full of energy. The young gorilla in today’s Foto Fix was busily snacking away as […]
