    We were at our condo last week. Here are a few shots from the beach, Huntington Beach State Park, and the aquarium.

    Scott,

    Absolutely beautiful.

    Great pictures, I would have a very hard time picking the one I like best - perhaps the third photo, though.
    That moon-eclipse is spectacular, this way!

    Thanks, Cees. I got a little lucky with the moon shots over the palm trees. We ran into our realtor while I was shooting some ocean scenes, and she mentioned the moon would be positioned perfectly over the trees of the pool area from a certain viewing spot. I'm not sure I would have noticed the angle without her being there. She was taking some shots with her iPhone for her real estate sales website, but now she is going to use my shots instead.

    Thanks, Sam. FYI, I used Lightroom to process all these shots. I am beginning to get the hang of the program.
    While the evening shots I posted above were all on a tripod, here are a couple more "casual" shots where I didn't bother with the tripod and just shot handheld. In a case like this, having image stabilization on a normal range zoom lens comes in handy.

    We were back in South Carolina last week. Here are a few shots from the trip. I recently upgraded my square filters to Lee (grad ND & 3 stop ND), plus added a 10 stop HiTech ND filter. The landscape shots were taken with combos of these filters.

    92 second exposure with 10 stop filter + 2 stop grad ND:

    94 second exposure:
