Morning Soledad Cross Photo Shoot - Mt Soledad

Sorry for the late notice, but come shoot the cross. A one of a kind Memorial with angles, reflections and patterns, not to mention the Memorial itself.  On clear days, the panoramic views are spectacular.  Torrey Pines, downtown, and the Coronado Islands , to name a few.  The gates open at 7 am but you can park on La Jolla Scenic Dr. and walk in (at your own discretion). Otherwise drive up and park up top by the cross if there is a space, or park down below in the overflow lot you pass upon entering the gates.  No charge, no fees!

When we are done, we can go down the hill to Windansea beach to make a great day of photography.

      Yeah they're tearing down the one across the street from my ol place. It's been so long I said it was Playa del Sur...It was actually Playa del Norte. Old girlfriend lived on Playa del Sur so that stuck in my mind.

      I think I'm gonna pass on this shoot. The "Sireeeeen" song of the Sea is calling me to just shoot surf. So I think I will just go down to Windnsea directly, and earlier.

    Good idea, too early for me. There's also the FIRST robotic competition at Valley View casino, this weekend.

    Surf at Windnsea is forecast around 6-7' on Saturday early. But drops off for Sunday.
    Conditions are good. That would make for a nice 2nd shoot right after this.

    And if you get hungry after Windnsea I recommend Ohana Cafe. One of the few places you can just shut your eyes and point in the general direction of the menu...it'll be very tasty. The Macadamia Nut encrusted Salmon plate lunch is DA BOMB.
