As if claimed as their own island

We arrived at Laguna Beach a little bit later than planned. The sky was mixed with the early morning clouds just clearing up and the patches of blue sky far out in the ocean. While waiting for the clients to change and come down to the beach, the lead photographer and I took some landscape shots, or seascapes. I noticed a handful of gulls resting on a lone rock, as if claimed as their own island, seen through a crooked U-shaped window. It was an illusion created by the cluster of rock formations in the foreground. It was definitely a shot that had me deploy my 70-200mm lens.

Forget about heat and just relax

As part of the exploration of the local waterfalls, Etiwanda Falls, located in North Etiwanda Preserve, San Bernardino County, was one of my picks since I was nearby. Although I enjoyed the view of Etiwanda and Cucamonga Peaks while going up, hovering over 90F of a heat wave shot rather quickly up to over 100F by the time I reached the waterfalls. Luckily, the dense woods surrounding the falls provided lots of shade, which helped those who hiked under the scorching sun forget about the heat and just relax, while it was still relatively close to the city.

Just magical

On my way back to the trailhead, I often hopped across or sauntered along many Eaton Canyon streams, and this particular one just stopped me. How brightly the light illuminated the woods from behind and the reflection of the gorgeous colors in the stream was just magical. I couldn’t pass it up. I put down my backpack and started setting up my camera for a few shots.

Freezing motion of crashing waves

I drove out to Golden Cove upon seeing the clouds forming right above my neighbourhood. They were Altocumulous clouds, but when I got to the beach, they didn’t advance much toward the sun. Only a few streaks of clouds lingered above the horizon. So, I decided to focus on the crashing waves and splashes instead. I always love freezing the motion of crashing waves. The sun was just about touching down the horizon.

Icing on cake

Lately I revisited one of the past road trips and found this shot - our galaxy over the remnants from the Gold Rush. I took many shots at this old mining camp in Paletto, NV that night, and this was one of the shots left behind for some reason. No one was around, except occasional late night drivers on Hwy 266. The chilly, dry air permeated in the typical high desert with not a single cloud let me capture a clear view of the Milky Way. And then, the shooting star was icing on the cake.

She didn’t hesitate

I asked my friend if she could hop over to the closest rock to Havasu Falls and pose there. She didn’t hesitate. Remember it was late September. The mist swirling in the air was one thing. The constant splashes in the shade was another. The longer she stood there, the colder it got. And I took more than just a few shots. And yet, no complaint whatsoever. She was a real trooper!

Watermarks etched in wall

There were no hikers or kids staying in or jumping in the pool once the whole area was in the shade. So, I started doing long exposure. The silky smooth motion was always a focal point, but I also loved the texture of the rock formations. The watermarks etched in the wall were clearly visible that there was once a much bigger waterfalls that carved out this canyon.

Night was young

When I reached Santa Monica Pier, it was quite late, and yet I saw more people flocking to the beach than leaving. The roller-coaster never ceased to frighten the screaming kids and the solar-powered ferris wheel never stopped spinning. Kids were out of school. Summer just officially began. Night was young.

Again, and again...

While we hung out longer at Havasu Falls, I decided to get close to the falls. Caught the sliver of the light edging the tip of the rocks by the top portion of the falls. I must’ve been too close though. I found myself taking a shot and then wiping off the mist on the lens. Took another, wiped it again. Again, and again...

Freezing crashing waves

When there’s no cloud in the sky whatsoever, even a sunset can be not as fascinating as it actually is. Then, how can we make it interesting? Substitute it with more action and more subjects in the foreground! That’s the idea anyway… While waiting to capture the moment of the sun touching down the horizon, there I was freezing the crashing waves and preserving the undisturbed foamy water between the rocks.
