Same County, Two and a Half Hours Apart

3:03pm, Hwy 241 Southbound to Santa Margarita 5:31pm, Seal Way, Seal Beach
Mon 01.03.11 – This afternoon I helped my sister and mom pick up Allison’s new used Prius at the Penske Toyota dealership in Santa Margarita, as we drove to south east Orange County the rain clouds opened up and blue sky peeped through an avocado grove. It was beautiful.
By the time I got home, it was time for Scruffy’s evening walk and off we went. Only two and half hours from the time I took the first photo in the Orange County hills, it was cloudy and ominous in north west oceanic OC. As we set out for our walk, the sun will finished setting and the last refracting blue light of dusk was shooting through the clouds at odd angles on top of the yellow cast street light bouncing off the houses.

Nokia N8: Why I Love Late Dusk

Late dusk at the Seal Beach pier
Mon 11.01.10 – Actually, what I really love about the Nokia N8 – the amazing low light photos!
View of Catalina Island, the Seal Beach pier parking lot, a container ship, and Palos Verdes taken this evening sometime after 6pm with my Nokia N8. The sunset and dusk was lovely tonight and the air was crystal clear.
