Capturing the Full Moon

A view of the full moon in Orange County California

As the moon was rising, I couldn't help but attempt to take a photo of it. The setting with the trees in front provided a focus towards the moon. The palm trees at the bottom of the photo adds a Southern California touch.

A view of the sunset in Orange County California

After enduring traffic on the 5, I noticed an opportune moment to continue practicing taking pictures. I saw the view of the sun juxtaposed with the clouds.

Then, I noticed to my right, there was a mini rainbow:

A Clear Day

Photo taken by me


After the recent rain, Saturday was a clear and sunny day providing a great opportunity to take a clear photo of the snow covered mountain. This photo was taken in Downtown Santa Ana with the view of the Downtown Orange County water tower. However, tomorrow (Sunday) appears to be the heaviest of the rain, thus far, with an anticipation of around 1 to 2 inches of rain. Stay dry out there!
