San Diego (lake Murray)
Photo By Douglas Lee Coon

  • Title: San Diego (lake Murray)
  • State/Province/Region: California
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: I-8
  • Nearest Town: La Mesa
  • Brief Directions: Take the Lake Murray exit off the 8. In Sunny San Diego
  • Notes: I often run this frequented location in the early morning along with a dozen or so other locals. I noticed that after the sun comes up the light is perfect. If you have a camera the best light is on a cloudy day it creates a softbox that breathes life into the landscape. The most difficult part is the waiting and watching for the light to be just right. If you compose your shot just right you may even get our large Cowles Mountain in the shot. The whole journey is a not too hefty 5k, well worth it! In fact I have hiked uphill farther to get fewer shots. This may seem ordinary to some but the pictures don't lie it's a true "San Diego Treasure!"
  • Best Season: Winter
  • Gear: SLR, Tripod, Jogging shoes, Bring your Eye!

    Thank you very much, Alena! Before planning your visit, do make sure to check park hours, as this area is not open to the public year-round.

    Lovely composition of greenery and water motion, Alena. I especially like the textured waterfall curtain effect you have captured.
