Summer in Southern California

Downtown Los Angeles is the central business district of Los Angeles. I love taking photographs at twilight. This is my magic hour sunset. The traffic adds movement and excitement.

Featuring many of the city's major cultural institutions and sports facilities, sightseeing opportunities, skyscrapers, public art and unique shopping. Downtown is the hub of the city's freeway network.
  Santa Catalina Island, often called Catalina Island, or just Catalina, is a rocky island 22 miles south-southwest from Los Angeles by sailboat or Catalina Cruises. About a million tourists visit the island every year. The panoramic view above was taken at Hamilton Cove a short water taxi or Golf Cart ride from Avalon Harbor.
 RMS Queen Mary is a retired ocean liner now located in Long Beach California, above is a view taken on the bridge. This is an HDR image, three exposures, +, N, - combined in Photomatix Pro.

  Santa Monica, California....what's not to like about this image.....beautiful sunset, people jogging and a Hobie Cat  catamaran sailboat. This upscale beachfront city on Santa Monica Bay was my home for many years. The sailboat and joggers were added in Photoshop CS4
 The Venice Canal Historic District is a district in the Venice section of Los Angeles, California. There are four east-west canals: Carroll Canal, Linnie Canal, Howland Canal, and Sherman Canal, and two north-south canals: Eastern Canal and Grand Canal. The beautifully lit canals with arched bridges is a great must see place to visit. Another HDR image.
The Santa Monica Pier is a large double-jointed pier located at the foot of Colorado Avenue in Santa Monica California. A fantastic place to spend a lot of time at. Panorama view made from four images stitched together.
