[Photo] Mt. Soledad Long Exposures

I apologize for my lack of posts as of late. It's been midterm season, so things have been a bit crazy. Thankfully, everything is starting to calm down again, so I have time for new content! Anyway, let's get to my first post-hiatus post. Back in December, I took a road trip down to San Diego with some friends. The main purpose behind it was food (posts on that to come soon), but in between eating, we took a digestion break up at Mt. Soledad. That night, the fog was rolling in and it looked beautiful. I immediately thought, "long exposures!" Here are the results from that night.

Here's a view South of Mt. Soledad. You can see the 5 Freeway illuminated by cars. This one is actually an HDR photo. In fact, it was probably my first ever HDR photo. I'm not a big fan of HDR photos, but I thought I would take the opportunity to try it out for once. It doesn't look as hideous as most HDRs tend to be.

Here's a Southeast view from the Mountain. The silky fog was covering everything around San Diego that night.

Finally, this is the cross that sits on the top of Mt. Soledad. There are usually tons of tourists sitting around it, but people tend to clear out once darkness sets in.
