San Diego, CA in Infrared

I was in San Diego just recently and was staying at the Holiday Inn near the 5 freeway.  As I have noted before I always ask for a room with a view when checking in…on a high floor!  This is the shot from Floor 9 of downtown San Diego.  It was a rainy few days and luckily the sun was shinning for this shot!  San Diego is a great little city…much to do and see!  San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, Sea World, Coronado, etc….a must visit if you can make it!!!

Here is some info from the web: San Diego, named after Saint Didacus (Spanish: Diego de Alcalá), is the ninth largest city in the United States, second-largest city in California and 46th largest city in the Americas.
