San Diego Sunset

San Diego Sunset
Sky watch Friday

This was probably the best sunset we saw during our time in San Diego. We both felt as if we had walked into a volcano without all that pesky ash and heat. Everything was bathed in beautiful colors and the sunset went on for a long time. The last picture was actually when we were walking up the hill to go home. These were shot with the D700 and 105mm Nikon lens. The lens doesn’t seem to flare that much and the D700 handles the exposure quite well.


Here is a shot of Ruby and Juno on the beach. The dogs were allowed on the beach before 9 am and after 4pm. I was surprised that they liked it so much. I guess with all the other dogs, people and flotsam and jetsam that made it interesting for them.


This last picture is a Lily that was at the little flower stand in Pacific Beach. It was nice to have a place to get fresh flowers. I am not sure of the name of the place but it was right next to the La Jolla Car Wash on Turquoise Street. This flower kind of reminded of the sun so that why I included it in this post.


Happy Skywatching.

Lovely! I love red skies. It gives color to the normally blue and white roof on our heads.
