Balboa Sunise

Balboa Park, San Diego, CA

"Sometimes I do get to places just when God's ready to have somebody click the shutter."
Ansel Adams

This quote couldn't be truer than my experience with this shot. I thought I had timed leaving
my hotel so that I could be in Balboa Park for sunrise. To my surprise as I walked out of the
hotel the sky allready had a great red tone to it and I had 10mins to get to Balboa. Ten minutes
later I was stopped at the stoplight just before turning into the park and this great scene
appeared. I rolled down the passenger side window and shot this shot. Then had to go as the light turned green.
