Recent Pictures from LA LA Land

Here are a few of photos from my quick weekend getaway to LA 2 weeks ago. (They were all shot with my iPhone.) The lifeguard stations had been moved back from the water’s edge to avoid the winter high tides. The gorgeous, classic VW Beetle was up at Malaga Cove. Ah… the weather in paradise!  … Continue reading

Stormy Sunrise at Malaga Cove

We so rarely have “weather” here. So, when I saw the forecast called for a storm front to move in, I thought it might be a good time to go to Malaga Cove, such a beautiful place, to shoot a time lapse as the sun came up.  I jumped out of bed at 3:00am!  The surfer dudes were riding the… Continue reading

So here are some photos… Continue reading

First CineSlider Time Lapse

This morning I got up really early (3:45AM) to shoot a time lapse of the Galaga Cove along the Palos Verdes Shoreline Preserve. Unfortunately, the area is not open for parking until 5AM; so, as tomorrow is the longest day of the year, I missed the transition from complete darkness to sunrise. It was already fairly light out when I… Continue reading
