Hi Friends!! I don't have anything crafty to share today just a bunch of photos that I took during our time at the beach during the Labor Day weekend. When I don't craft, I like to take photos. I have a stock pile of photos that I want to share but I'm not sure if anyone who reads my blog want to see photos.
Just a little detail about my photos. I have a Canon Rebel XSi and all of the photos except for the first photo in this post were taken with a "wide angle lens", specifically the Canon 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 lens. This lens is perfect for landscape photos. The first photo above was taken using my cel phone, believe it or not, but I corrected the photo's exposure and did a few color correction using Adobe Lightroom 3. Unfortunately, you can only do so much correction to a photo. You can see the difference in the colors that the photo was not taken using my camera.
The beach was pretty crowded but people weren't allowed to swim because of the huge waves and strong rip current the day we were there. The photos were taken at the Oceanside beach in San Diego.
This photo was taken at the end of the pier and looking towards the beach. There's a restaurant at the end of the pier so we decided to walk down and eat lunch there. There were a lot of people fishing. . .I think they were catching mullet and sardines.
This is an angled shot of the pier. This photo was actually taken with my standard Canon 28-105mm lens.
I love this shot of the lifeguards racing down the water to rescue a surfer. They were flying at top speed. The lifeguard in the back was literally flying off the water and bouncing up and down which I believe must have hurt a lot. These lifeguards are amazing.
I'm originally from Hawaii where there are HUGE waves so to me, these waves were not big waves at all. Actually, it would be considered small waves but in San Diego, I guess they don't get too many large waves so it was a big deal here.
We didn't stick around for the sunset but it was setting a little when I took this photo of the pier.
Here is a wide angle shot of the pier.
The pier and the beach were nearly empty of people when I took this shot. It was getting a little chilly by California standards. We don't tolerate cold temperatures very well.
Just a footprint shot. It's footprints of a little kid that was walking on the sand.
Although it was a little cold, my daughter decided to eat ice cream so I took a silhouette photo of her eating her ice cream.
That's it for today. I may share more photos tomorrow. Not of the beach but other photos that I took recently. Hope you all are having a wonderful Thursday!
