San Diego, California – City View (HDR)

San Diego, who would not want to be there right now? It is a lovely small city in Southern California. So many things to do there…Sea World, San Diego Zoo, USS Midway, Gaslamp Quarter, Balboa Park, Coronado, Point Loma Lighthouse, Petco Park, Old Town San Diego or just take a harbor cruise! And do not forget to stop by and grab an In-N-Out hamburger!!

The shot above was from my hotel room…the Holiday Inn on the Bay in SD. I was up on the 13th floor and had a nice city view! Remember to always ask for a view room when you check in!! YOu can see I used my 500mm f/1.4 lens for this shot. I wanted to keep the noise low and shot nearly wide open. One of my very few ever used 50mm landscape shots.
