Yorba Linda, CA – Black Gold Golf Club (HDR)

Black&Gold_Talke
We had an amazing week of sunsets here in SoCal this past week. We don’t get a ton each year…but when we do, they are spectacular! Days like this I wish I lived at the beach…but we live 30 minutes inland. A storm was due in the next day and I knew we had one more sweet sunset coming our way! I took the few minute drive over the the golf course and set up and waited. I don’t play a lot of golf, but enjoy the beauty of courses. The building in the back is the clubhouse. The sun was setting and created a sweet orange glow! Enjoy the view!

From my hometown of Yorba Linda, CA…this is the fountain located at the Nixon Library. This past week we have been having some amazing sunsets in SoCal. I have been busy and missed many, but earlier in the day I could tell we were going to have another good one and took the quick drive to the fountain to grab a few shots! Enjoy!

Palm Desert, CA – Infrared Real Estate

Palm D_Talke
I recently had a Real Estate session in Palm Desert and brought along my Infrared camera! I shot about 13 IR photos and was hoping one IR shot would prove to be cool! I thought this one was it. The house is on the right. A few houses share the centrally located pool. I do not think I have ever seen an Infrared Real Estate photo? The agent may use it for the MLS? Does it work? Hopefully!!! Will let ya know how it goes!

One of Orange County’s best quiet little beach areas is Corona Del Mar! A cute little beach with lovely views and rocks! Great for HDR’ing! I plan on going raw and trying some long exposures here….no HDR’ing! Looks for some shots soon!

When you want to get that sun flare look to your pics…f/22 is the trick!!

Mission In HDR _Talke
About 30 minutes from where live you can find the sweet hotel Mission Inn. Great for HDR’ing! I went up this day early to grab some shots and love the architecture! This is a walkway that overlooks the courtyard below. I am looking forward to going during the holiday season….they have a million lights! Look for pics in December. Have fun!

Life is a beach! Balboa Island is a great place to relax and forget the hustle and bustle of the world…sit on the cool sand, listen to the waves crashing the shoreline and catch a beautiful sunset! I’ll be here Friday nite…a nice way to start a weekend!
