Cruising the West Coast — Santa Catalina Island Part 2

Today we present more photographs of that picturesque gem off the California Coast known as Catalina Island.

In the early morning we were greeted by almost perfect photographic conditions.  Bright sunlight fell upon the buildings, but dark and ominous clouds filled the background beautifully.  It was a blast taking pictures under these conditions.  Alas, that didn’t hold, and for most of the day the city of Avalon sit beneath a cloud that blocked the sun — a cloud that remained stationary for many, many hours.  Things only improved later in the afternoon, when the sun dipped below the offending solitary cloud and once again lighted the landscape.

The camera used on this excursion was a Canon G1 X.  Post processing was minimal and done in Google’s Picasa from copies of the original JPEGs.
