The Not-so-Sunny side of So-Cal – San Diego, Sequoia and more!

Pin It

Past month, our lives took us back to NJ. It was with mixed feelings that we left San Diego. On one hand, it is great opportunity for me at work and we’ll be close to friends and family but on the other hand we’ll miss the sunshine, the beaches, the sunsets and beautiful landscape of California.

Below are some of my most precious memories from California

Above is one my favorite spots in San Diego – Secret caves in La Jolla. It took numerous tries, perfect timing and bit of luck to get to this place with my SLR.

Sunset Cliffs Park is aptly named!

Scripps Pier is probably one of the most photographed places in San Diego and once you witness a sunset like this, you know why.

Sunny California: Landscape and Seascape Photography

Pin It

Since moving to moving to California, I’ve been experimenting with Landscape photography. The west coast is just so scenic that you want cant help but pick up your camera and try to capture it. The downside is that I’m spending too much money on Landscape photography gear!

Over the next few weeks, I’ll be posting a lot of pictures from the adventures so far. Starting with the ones below.

Hawaii – Kauai – Getting one with Nature

Pin It

We recently visited Kauai. Its the oldest of the Hawaii islands. We picked it over the other islands because its one the least commercialized of the Hawaii islands and of the most beautiful. The island is full of mountains and gets some of the highest rainfall in the world. The result of this is that the island has some spectacular waterfalls.

Unfortunately, our trip to paradise was interrupted by health issues. Both my wife and I got sick for 4 out of the 7 days we were there and this limited the pictures I could take. Nevertheless, below is a glimpse of the beautiful island

The Hindu Monastery in Kauai is one of the most peaceful places I’ve visited and one of my favorite temples

Tahoe and Yosemite – Landscape Photography

Pin It

Since we moved to San Diego, we’ve been trying to explore the west coast. Late last year we took a trip to Tahoe and Yosemite. Below are some of the pictures.

My only regret is that we went in November so we didnt see much of snow. Also given the severe California drought, all the waterfalls in Yosemite were dried out :-( Nevertheless, Yosemite is still very beautiful.

We were greeted by a breath taking view of the milky way coming from Yosemite

Tahoe has some of the clearest water I’ve seen in a lake


This is where we see the severity of the drought
