Places 2 Explore will be quiet for a few weeks…be back in Mid July! Enjoy my Sports Art video!
From a visit one day to Corona Del Mar Beach in Orange County….a lovely sunset at the Volleyball Court. If you are on Instagram….you can find me at “Peter Talke”….I always put my posts here on Instagram as well….as well as IPhone shots. When I do…my fav filter is XPro II. For some reason it makes pics look cool!! Adds a vignette & some toning that I enjoy. I set out to find if there were any actions for Photoshop? I did find one…but it needed a little extra to get that look….tweaked a tad! Here is my Photoshop Instagram Version.
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!

As a big motocross fan…I saw picture on Instagram of the Fox Headquarters building in Irvine and had to take a short drive to see it. Pretty cool design! I’d like to grab this shot at nite as well. Fox Head, Inc. or simply known as Fox is privately owned action sports and clothing brand founded in 1974. Fox designs, develops and distributes clothing and accessories to over fifty countries primarily focusing on motocross. Inside you can find a store with clothing and MX gear. One more shot from inside the store…
We have been enjoying Friday nights at Balboa (Newport Beach)…we head down and rent bikes to ride along the beach paths and last nite we took the 1 mile ride to the Wedge to watch the surfers. We wanted to get back to the pier for sunset….as we were peddling back I saw the sun fading fast and pulled my bike over to grab this photo near the pier. SoCal at its best!!
