It seems the gray skies dominated sunny San Diego this May. We are somehow spoiled by the almost year round San Diego sun and the amazing colors that come with it. However this gray May is an opportunity to visualize in monochrome and create black & white images. A friend and I went to hospital reef in La Jolla, knowing that the tide will be low and there will be no glorious sunset. This is a great time to do long exposures without the need for ND filters. With a tripod mounted EOS 5D Mark III with an EF 11-24 lens, I exposed between 20 seconds to 4 minutes. Single RAW image files processed in Lightroom CC. See more: http://www.arnelgarcia.com/lajolla.
