Oceanside, California
August 31, 2013
Nikon D3100: Tamron 18-270 at 35 mm: ISO 400: 1/320 sec.: f/10
After the sun when down over Catalina Island, I hung out for just a few minutes to capture the last remains of the sunset and the blue sky and interesting clouds that replaced it.

Oceanside, California
September 1, 2013
Nikon D3100: Tamron 18-270 at 120 mm: ISO 100: 1.30 sec.: f/18
This isn't your traditional sunset photo.  As I was shooting the sunset over the ocean, I noticed the dark skies over the pier with the colors of the sunset reflecting off the ocean and started shooting away.

Nikon D3100: Tamron 18-270 at 140 mm: ISO 400: 1/160 sec.: f/9
On this night, the sunset wasn't as spectacular as the night before (see this), but I was able to set up the tripod and shoot for a half hour or so.

Sunset over Catalina Island

Oceanside, California
August 31, 2013
Nikon D3100: Tamron 18-270 at 120 mm: ISO 320: 1/500 sec.: f/11
Another shot taken from the top of Ruby's on the Oceanside Pier.  As it was taken during dinner, I wasn't at liberty to pull out the tripod and get more creative, but the sunset was too stunning to not shoot.  Here is a minute before.

Seattle Skyline

Seattle, Washington
August 27, 2013
Nikon D3100: Tamron 18-270 at 155 mm: ISO 400: 1/80 sec.: f/8
This is my final shot from my one two nights in Seattle last August.  My complaint about the Seattle pier was always there was nothing to do there, so I was pretty excited to see the new Ferris wheel.  I knew I had to get a shot of it, but just couldn't find a good view.  I finally settled for this quick shot I took from the West side of Safeco field while leaning out over the edge of the railing.

Seattle Railroad 2

Seattle, Washington
August 27, 2013
Nikon D3100: Tamron 18-270 at 18 mm: ISO 100: 1.30 sec.: f/22: Hoya ND8
I tried a few times to get a good long exposure shot of this train, but it was moving so slow into the station, I could not get what I wanted so this is what I settled for because I was starting to get hungry and didn't want to wait around for the next train.  See the shot I did of the train first appearing in the tunnel here.

Mariners' Bullpen

Seattle, Washington
August 27, 2013
Nikon D3100: Tamron 18-270 at 100 mm: ISO 800: 1/60 sec.: f/13
With a free night in Seattle and the Mariners in town, I had to go catch a game.  It was a great game that went to extra innings before we lost on a questionable balk.  In this shot, the bullpen is all hanging out before the game watching Hisashi Iwakuma warm up. Check out some of my images from a game I went to in 2011.

Oceanside, California
September 1, 2013
Nikon D3100: Tamron 18-270 at 270 mm: ISO 100: 1/1250 sec.: f/6.30
We spent the entire day at the beach taking turns playing in the ocean and watching our baby so I took a little time to shoot some photos while the baby was sleeping.
