A very happy Monday morning to you all and I trust you had a fabulous weekend.
This past week I spent a large majority of my time organizing my photo files, cataloging and securing them to a collective group of external hard drives. With the advent of digital photography, it has become imperative to secure the digital files in a library and folder system that allows me to find them for future use. The day of the film negative envelope is long gone.
While looking through images from one of my recent trips to San Diego, I came across a folder of images I had shot while touring Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery and Point Loma Lighthouse National Park. Both of these attractions sit atop a hill that overlooks the entrance to San Diego bay and offers a spectacular view of the city and the Pacific Ocean. The lighthouse was originally commissioned in 1855 and then moved to its current location overlooking the bay in 1891 due to a serious flaw. At 422 feet above sea level, fog and clouds often obscured the beacon from being able to alert approaching ships and vessels.
On my chosen day to visit, the clouds were playing peak-a-boo with the sun and as historically advertised hindering any sighting of the city or the ocean. As luck would have it, just as I was about to give up for the day, a beam of sun light broke through the clouds and began to illuminate the property pushing the cloud coverage aside. I must say it was well worth the wait.
From the elevated point you can look to the coast of the Mexican state of Baja California. 15 miles south of San Diego and 8 miles from the Mexican coast sits a group of four islands. The Coronado Islands, which are under the jurisdiction of the municipality of Tijuana, are uninhabited and currently serve as a Mexican wildlife refugee. On a clear day they are visible from Point Loma and on this day as the fog and clouds cleared I was able to get a brief glimpse of the top of one the islands. The sightseeing boat added the perfect compliment to the picturesque setting.
ENJOY a California moment and a breath of fresh air!!!!!
