Images of Amazing California: San Diego. La Jolla. Horse Ranches.

Hi Friends! 🙂

California is a vast, geographically (and culturally) diverse state. Whether it’s surfing in Malibu, skiing at Lake Tahoe or four-wheeling on the sands of the Mojave Desert – adventure is never too far away.

Over the past month, I’ve been fortunate enough to visit a few horse ranches. The amazingly beautiful coastal neighborhood of La Jolla. And the awesome city of San Diego. Here are some shots I took of those experiences.

Thanks for enjoying my images! Have a terrific day!

  1. “A Time, A Place”; I shot the remnants of a similar old plow or wagon on the outskirts of Burlington, ON years ago. The seat is identical.

    I still have yet to do anything with those shots. I like this one a lot.

    • Hey, thank you for the nice comment! Yes, we are thankful to be avoiding the hurricanes, but our hearts go out to those affected. Last summer, our city was struck with a wildfire (Sand Canyon Fire), and it was pretty scary for a few days, but we remained unscathed. We’ve had a few smaller fires since then. This past week, Burbank was hit with one. And, that’s about 20 miles south of our home. So, our skies were filled with smoke due to the prevailing winds, and we could smell the burnt flora in our yard. Luckily for the area, that fire was contained pretty quickly. We have some pretty amazing firefighters in our region. Have a wonderful day!

    • Hi! Thanks so much. I really like your comment about my different perspective. That’s my goal. I mean, so many people have access to cameras nowadays because of phones. So, I just want to stand out and show the world a unique perspective on sometimes ordinary things. Always awesome to hear from you!! Have a great rest of the week!

  2. LOVED these photos!! Many of these are shots taken in places where I have actually stood myself. I grew up in San Diego and though the Northwest has been home for many years, I miss San Diego, my beaches, Torrey Pines and Manzanitas (the trees), the ranches! Thanks for a wonderful trip down memory lane (and for visiting my blog too!)

  3. Hi Kevin! My favorite is ‘Life in Water’ I just love the way you pick up the colors in the water in contrast with the sky. Every picture is amazing! Thanks for sharing with us – it is truly a blessing to see things through your eyes.
