Yorba Linda, CA – Nixon Library Fountain (HDR)

Nixon Fountain HDR SW_talke
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!

Spaceship Oakley (HDR)

I had a little fun with an HDR I took of the Oakley Headquarters in Foothill Ranch. Looks like a spaceship cruising in the clouds. Have fun with your photos and sometimes think outside the box! =)

Or how about an Oakley Robot…with a little Cylon eye.

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!!

Newport Beach, CA – Sunset

Balboa Sunset SW+Talke
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!!
