there was this little island covered in trees, and some light coming through the clouds making a spot of ocean glow. i zoomed in on it and hit the shutter. changed the white balance to 'cloudy' in lightroom since i heard if your pics are too blue everyone can tell you're an amateur. i also cropped it a bit, as i tend to do.

how do i late submit this for week 4 though?

Went home to LA last weekend. I grew up right next to Runyon Canyon, a park with awesome hiking and views

Unfortunately its only really clear in LA after it rains, but this pic of downtown attempts to show LA's smog.

I camped at kirby cove two weeks ago...its heaven for wannabe photographers like me. Theres nothing particularly fancy about the technique in this pic, but i thought it captured a cool moment / scene so here it is.

edit: i'm gonna cheat and upload a few more pics i liked

I went on a hike on Mt. Tam this weekend. Don't remember the name of the trail, but caught a few awesome bay views, including this one of San Quentin State Prison and Richmond Bridge.

I've been having a lot of fun playing with bokeh, for this shot i wanted the trees sharp and the background blurred. I cropped the pic so that only a bit of the trees are in the shot, and san quentin is more prominent. I also raised the saturation a tiny bit to make the trees greener and the background bluer. I wish I had gotten the trees in the foreground a bit sharper.

The photo was taken with a sony a6000, with the 16-50mm kit lens. I don't remember the settings at the moment, but but I was shooting with a small f-stop
