Amazing hike filled with flowers and epic views of pacific. Kid friendly! #BestOf5 One of my favorite Piers in San Diego to photograph. When looking out to the ocean from underneath the pier it looks like a doorway to heaven. Captured by millions but still remains to be one of the most picturesque place to see in San Diego. Hiking down to the beach and shooting the passing riders, gliding effortlessly past me. The tide ebbs below the Scripps Pier in La Jolla, California. A great vista to see paragliders every time!!! Salk Institute in La Jolla California! Architecturally designed so that the sunset during the Spring Equinox lines up perfectly with a beautiful water display! #goldenhourphoto Pacific Ocean Sunset #sunset #lajolla #goldenhour #travel #adventure Sunset silhouettes As a kid my parents would take me and my brother to this beach every other weekend. This has to be one of the best childhood memories. The lagoon feeds right into the ocean underneath a bridge. My brother and I would look for crabs underneath the rocks in the lagoon. We would have competitions to catch the biggest crab. Fun times and a amazing beach to visit if you are ever in San Diego. Beautiful California sunset #lajolla #goldenhour #travel #sunset #colorful If you have an hour to spare around San Diego, take this glorious hike at Torrey Pines. San Diego
California #sunsetshots #BeachBound Wait! You are not imagining a house 🏡 perched on top of a building! Leave it to those quirky engineers at UCSD to figure out a way to put a house at a wild angle on top of their 7 story building.

Pier.... Caught him in a double take before he drifting back to sleep:) Just an amazing backdrop here at Torrey Pines marsh. Come out and enjoy a sunset in San Diego! Is it just me or do seals appear to be the best cuddlers!? #cuddlebuddies :)
Seals, relaxing at sunset. #cutecreatures Scripps Pier in La Jolla during sunset  $4 to enter, walk down many steps to the cove. Take a hike, sit with your toes in the ocean..or sail on the wind like a bird..
I chose to hang on the cliffs and practically high five the Para gliders as they passed..
San Diego County just North of LA Jolla. Neat little beach. Vista just off the PCH near my work that I like to watch the sunset from. #torreypines La Jolla beach, Pacific Ocean
#waterlust I was driving north and took a detour along the scenic route that would eventually lead me to the Historic CA-101. Just after the sun set, I came upon this beautiful silhouette of the road that passes over the Coaster and I had to stop to shoot it! Enjoy the view from the nature trails up on the cliff of Torrey Pines, overlooking a nice stretch of coastline! This is a treasure located right along the beach front. The beauty of the land is breath taking... Another great find thanks to #Trover great hike to get to bottom and amazing experience. #BlacksBeach The cliffs just across from UC San Diego along the trail of the Scripps coastal reserve provide what I consider to be the best sunset viewing point in San Diego. Oftentimes from the cliffs (which overlook blacks beach to the right and the Scripps pier to the left) I can see dolphins playing near shore, surfers catching waves, or a paraglider floating into the sunset. This place is what summer evenings are all about.
#sandiego #lajolla #endlesssummer #ocean #cliffs My happy place One of my favor beaches is here in San Diego. Torrey Pines state beach has the most stunning views of cliffs and wildlife know in Southern California. Come check it out! Get in after closing.

#Adventurepacked Catching a sunset. #waterlust Attended a private event at Birch Aquarium at night - beautiful and peaceful. Feb 2014 La Jolla Shores Amazing place for paragliding... absolutely must visit if you're visiting San Diego. It's also bang next to Torrey pines golf course #blue Nestled between La Jolla to the South and Del Mar to the North, this is a Perfect spot to hang out for the sunset. This beach is a couple of miles long, so it makes for some long leisurely strolls, scenic runs, or just hanging out! #goldenhour Cool cliffs Sea lions rule La Jolla and in this picture they show who the boss is. I fondly call this picture, Hiking at Torrey Pines is a must do in San Diego! Great hiking trails that even lead to the beach! #beachbound The San Diego Temple is beautiful Located on the cliffs above Black's Beach, the Torrey Pines Gliderport offers spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and the city of La Jolla. The gliderport is a Model Aviation Landmark of the Academy of Model Aeronautics (#1 in the nation). Catch this view on one of the many hikes Torrey Pines has for you to explore.

At Torrey Pines Here's a little gem in Sam Diego called Blacks Beach. It's a nudie beach and a bit of an adventure to access (use the rope!) #hiking #waterlust The best coastal beach in San Diego, CA. The beach is at the bottom of 300 ft sandstone cliffs of white and golden stones. Hiking the trails at Torrey Pines #hiking Torrey Pines has good views of the ocean. The trails are very family friendly. I was looking for a little more rugged hiking so I was disappointed. If you have to study, do it in style. Birch Aquarium sunset at Black's beach Cloudy sunset, beautiful spot Sunset run The hike to Three Sisters Waterfalls was at times so steep they had to install ropes to help you transverse it. #takeahike #threesisterswaterfall #hiking #california Glorious coastline of California! This is looking back towards La Jolla and San Diego Hiking Blacks Beach. What views great course Morning run. It's uphill on the way back unfortunately. Feb 2014
Torrey Pines A view that is well worth the hike, from the ocean up! Visited during a private after hours party. Amazing.
Driving South on the old coast hwy 101 I stopped and parked my car to capture this awesome sight for the first day of Spring in San Diego. #roadtrip Scenic views of ocean and city with bonus of watching trains go by. #Blue Hiking trail to the beach Beach walk This spot is one of the more popular architectural beauties to photograph in San Diego. Often praised for its beautiful sunsets (particularly on the equinoxes, during which the water channel, center, lines up perfectly with the setting sun), I find it quite beautiful on cloudy days as well. The grey sky is reflected by the concrete, flooding your entire visual field with brightness. It is equally cool to peer in on scientists doing lab work through the floor to ceiling windows! #lajolla hike to Black's beach UCSD has outdone themselves with their library! Love this trail!
