The other night, I think it was Christmas eve me and my brother and our wives drove down to Corona Island to scope out the views. Around this time of year is great to drive around San Diego or Los Angeles since there is hardly any traffic. Going down to Coronado from Del Mar during rush hour at any other time of the year would take hours, but we were able to do it in a few minutes.
I lived in Del Mar which is in San Diego country for about eight years and always wanted to get some cool shots of San Diego. I shot down there a bit when I was in college with my old film camera but I've yet to take any of my current DSLRs there. On this trip I wanted to get a great Downtown San Diego skyline and the best and most obvious place for that was Coronado Island. I wanted to get a cool shot of the bridge too but we couldn't really figure out where to go for that. Usually I research this kind of thing a little better but I just figured there is so much in San Diego that we'd find plenty of other cool things to shoot.
