Laguna Beach, CA – Infrared

Laguna Beach
What is a photog to do in SoCal when it is sunny most of the time? Shoot in Infrared. This shot is from Laguna Beach. A short walk from the Montage Spa & Hotel overlooking the Pacific Ocean. You can see a small part of it in the pic. This is my favorite spot in all of SoCal. You can find some seats that overlook the sea along the walking path and if you are here at sunset…stunning views! On this day about 1 mile out from the coast I could see a whale pop out of the ocean! How cool is that! If you are even in SoCal…Laguna has lots to offer!

Laguna Beach, CA – Infrared


From on my favorite locations in the US…Laguna Beach, CA. Picturesque coastline, great restaurants and wonderful art galleries! At Main Beach you can find a spots to enjoy the sun on the beach or play a game of volleyball or basketball on the beach as well. This shot was taken while walking down the beach from the Montage Spa & Resort…the best spot in Laguna with amazing views out the back of the hotel! I processed the glow effect with the new onOne’s Photo Suite 6…Perfect Effects 3!
