I posted this great view from the top of Palos Verdes above the La Venta Inn. It was a little overcast but the shot came out super sharp with the Sony SEL 24-240mm lens. Really impressed with the quality this gives even hand held. This was a hand held shot taken on the Sony A7RII. If you can zoom in to 100% you can see the fine details. You can actually see the new SoFi Stadium in the distance.
A hike up in the Palos Verdes hills on a Sunday afternoon just after the rains. The walk is magnificent and when you approach the peak you get a vista from Long Beach to Santa Monica with Los Angeles and the mountains in the background. I used the Sony A7Rii and a Canon 40mm with EOS to NEX adapter and shot with panorama effect.
Since spring is officially here I thought I’d take a walk around the South Bay Botanical Gardens in Palos Verdes and check out the wonderful botanical offerings that are on display. What a superb place to spend a leisurely afternoon. The dedicated volunteers and regular staff put so much effort into what is a virtual paradise in amongst the hustle and bustle…
Spring Barrow by Mike-Hope
…just a few hundred yards away. You actually feel you’re way out in the country with a mixture of exotic plants from palms to pines and flowers and shrubs galore. I’d highly recommend you give it a visit if you are in the area. I spotted another photographer taking a shot of this wheel barrow and commented on what a great shot it would make. I came back later at the end of my walk and grabbed this shot. I really like it! I hope you do too, it’s a real spring reminder.
