It’s incredible how good cell phones are now for taking pictures. Given the proper lighting and processing, they can produce some amazing pics. This was taken with my HTC EVO just a few days ago. Not too bad.
A couple of weeks ago, a coworker and I headed over to Oceanside to take some snapshots of the Pier during sunset. I realized I hadn’t been back since moving to Carlsbad last October, which is weird considering it’s just a short 10 minute drive from where I live. Anyways, it was my coworkers first time taking photos there so I was happy to show him key locations to be at as the sun was setting.
Here are a few of my favorites that I took. Enjoy!
After a week long rain-fest, we finally saw the sun today. I wasn’t about to miss out on this opportunity to soak up some sun, so I grabbed my camera and hung out at the beach. The one thing I love about heavy rain fall is that typically the day after, the light is amazing. Today was no different as the sun was golden during the late afternoon and early evening.

I went to the golf range today for the first time in about nine months. As expected, my golf swing sucks. Pounding 180+ golf balls didn’t really help either. In fact, hitting that many balls may have tweaked my back. It’s a little sore at the moment along with my left hand.
In between pounding golf balls, I took a few snapshots. I waited until the sun was setting so I could attempt to capture some flare. This is my favorite pic of the bunch. What do you guys think?
