San Diego Skyline Redux
Until I get that wall hanger shot of the San Diego skyline with the city lit up on a clear day with dramatic clouds, I will keep coming back to this spot and continue to try.
How to get this type of shot
This time out, I paid much more attention to the buildings in the skyline and tried to maximize the view of the more iconic buildings. Normally, I shoot from the platform (32.699961, -117.171648) at the end of Centennial Park in Coronado as in my post San Diego Skyline – Three Different Looks. The same photo can be seen as my current banner. In this view, although pleasing, the west tower of the Hyatt (second tallest building in the skyline) partially obscures the Westin Hotel (emerald building with green lights). For this new shot, I moved over around 400 feet down the shore and shot from the beach (see below). I feel it better showcases the San Diego skyline and will use this location for my “wall hanger” shot when the conditions are right.
