I got a chance to go out to San Diego a few weeks ago. I took my drone and my camera. Totally worth it. All I can say is, I’m extremely jealous of every Californian. The weather is great. The ocean views are superb and the laid back vibe is like digital jazz.
I managed to make it out to La Jolla and Sunset Cliffs. I caught sunsets at both. I got drone footage at La Jolla because its outside the no fly zone. Sunset Cliffs is to close to the airport so I couldn’t fly there. Both were cool for the camera. Unfortunately, both days were a bit overcast so I never got the exact shots I was looking for. Still, it was so worth it. At Sunset Cliffs there were some people with a campfire and volley ball having a blast while the sun went down. All I could think is, “they can do this every day????”.
La Jolla was great as well. There’s a guy in my video who was repeatedly jumping off the cliff. I was scared just where I was filming at. He was great. He asked me if I got a good shot and offered to do it a couple of times until I got clean video. Never would have happened on the east coast.
I also visited the USS Midway. I’d visited the Yorktown in Charleston but this is a whole different scale of aircraft carrier. Its mind boggling that its man made, floats and launches aircraft.
I had to get the traditional nighttime skyline shot. Its become a thing for me every time I visit a city. This was taken from Cornado Island.
Lastly, a shot the hotel I stayed in.
