Recently I’ve had two trips to San Diego within a few weeks of each other, and this has given me a great opportunity to explore this beautiful area of Southern California. And while there are still a great many photo locations I have yet to explore and look forward to capturing in a future visit, here are five of my favorite (so far) locations around the area. There are plenty of others that I have seen and explored, but I would say that these are among the “must shoot” spots.
San Diego Skyline
I really enjoy taking skyline and cityscape images, and there are a lot of spots on the beaches along Coronado Island where you can get a clear shot of downtown San Diego. Head over the Coronado Bridge and set the GPS for Centennial Park. The location is across the San Diego Bay, so be sure to pack a longer lens to get closer view of the city.
Bonus spot: If the bridge itself is something you might like to photograph, a great point for that is Cesar Chavez Park on the city side of the bay. There is a pier that extends out into the water and allows for some unobstructed views of the Coronado Bridge.
