Sunrise, Perris, California

This shot is one of the reasons I carry a camera every day. Not just my cell phone, but a real camera. Currently, I carry Canon PowerShot S120. Granted it is a point-and-shoot, but it shoots raw, and produces pretty good images. Almost any point-and-shoot is better than a cell phone anyway.

San Diego skyline at sunrise

This shot is one of my favorite shots of the San Diego skyline. I have taken it a few times, so I know exactly when to shoot it, and with what lens etc. Many shooters try to take the shot in the evening. The secret to the San Diego skyline, is to start shooting pre-dawn, and keep shooting into the dawn. Sometimes you get great color in the clouds.

ampm

This shot is a good example of why I carry a pocket camera every day and everywhere I go. This was shot with my Canon PowerShot S95. I was walking into ampm early one morning, and I looked up and saw gorgeous light as dawn was approaching. I could not resist taking the shot, and you see the result.
