Today’s photo was taken while returning from a fishing trip off the coast of San Diego a couple years ago. Something about sunsets and water that just go so well together.  Sony NEX-5N, SEL1855 @ 18mm, 1/60, f/5.0, ISO 100.

Today’s photo is another from San Diego.  As we departed on our fishing trip I shot this HDR image from the back of the boat.  The horizon is centered which is supposed to be a no-no, but I like the contrast between the drama of the clouds and the wake from the boat on the water.  Sony NEX-5N, SEL16mm, f/6.3

Today’s photo was taken yesterday at Oak Creek Canyon.  I originally took this as an HDR, but I wasn’t too happy with the merged results so I used the +2 exposure, which had the most movement in the water, and edited that single frame.  Sony NEX-5N, SEL35mm, 1/60, f/1.8, ISO 100

I’ve probably said it before, but Venice is such a magnificent city to visit and photograph.  Every view you see of the city is just an iconic representation of Venice.  Today’s photo was taken from the bridge next to our hotel.  I actually remember looking down this canal from the other direction on our previous trip to Venice; so when we booked this hotel, I already had my bearings of where we were at.  Trust me, Venice is a city you can easily get lost in – then again, that’s a big part of the appeal.

Edited in Nik Color Efex Pro 4 to increase the saturation and bring out some detail.  Sony NEX-5N, SEL16mm with VCL-ECF1, 1/125, f/4.0, ISO 100

Today’s photo is from Walt Disney World.  We stayed at the Polynesian Resort and one day while going to catch a boat on our way to Magic Kingdom I snapped this shot with my iPhone in Instagram.

Today’s photo is from Venice.  We hired a water taxi to take us back to the train station and instead of going back through the Grand Canal, the driver went out to the open waters between the city and the mainland.  It was nice to get a different perspective of the city.  This is apparently a streetlamp that we passed by.  Sony NEX-5N, Sigma 60mm, 1/3200 f/2.8, ISO 100

Tempe Town Lake

Today’s photo is from a recent walk around Tempe Town Lake.  After rains is a great time to take pictures since the wet ground adds so much to the scene.  Taken with my iPhone 5, edited in Silver Efx Pro 2.
