SD IR Boats

When we recently stayed in Mission Bay.  I took a morning stroll with my daughter and took this shot near the hotel.   I am laways looking for new subjects for IR…why not boats?  This one had some Palm Trees in the background, so I thought…might work well!  I took the shot and post processed in CS4 and added the black and white filter with Silver Efex Pro.

MissionBay was fun…here is some info form the web: Mission Bay Park is the largest man-made aquatic park in the country, consisting of 4,235 acres, approximately 46% land and 54% water. The park offers a wide range of recreational activities including paths for walking and jogging, and playgrounds for children. It is one of San Diego’s most popular locations to fly a kite, picnic or sail a model yacht. Fire rings make it possible to cook out and stay warm. Mission Bay Park also offers a variety of free opportunities to the public such as professional volleyball and Over-the-Line sporting events. Annual attendance in the park is estimated at 15 million.

It is located only 5 miles north of San Diego and easy to get to…right off the Route 5 highway!  Always nice and sunny in San Diego!  Enjoy!
