Here’s the lastest “Lightroom Short”, showing just a single technique: using negative Dehaze to soften highlights and overexposed areas selectively, giving them a bit of a glow effect. The video has been on my YouTube channel for a week already, and I sent out an email about it too, but forgot to mention it here on the blog! Duh! (and apologies if this is a “duplicate notifcation” for you.)
Laguna Crest Views Part 1: Color
This gallery combines ten more or less recent photos that I’ve made during my various visits to the Pacific Crest in San Diego’s Laguna Mountains (often called the Laguna Crest) and, except for the first two, mostly when I was trying in vain to get the shaft-of-rain-at-sunset photo that I mentioned in “My Monsoon Timing Sucks“. :)
My Monsoon Timing Sucks
The feature image and title of this article combined must seem like click-bait or some odd form of humble-bragging. That is not my intention: the photo really isn’t the one that I set out to make… and have been trying to make, for quite some time!

Last Friday, a storm system brought lightning, thunder and a little bit of rain to San Diego again. This isn’t entirely unusual, but this year’s amount of summer storms that actually reach the coastal areas of the county is higher than what I’ve experienced in the past.

Halloween Sunset, Bernardo Mountain
The skies looked promising yesterday in the late afternoon, so I went for a quick walk to “that new/old spot” overlooking Lake Hodges again. I knew that the direction probably wouldn’t be “perfect” for a sunset photo so this was more to still my curiosity.
