After a busy week, I almost gave up the hope to take a few pictures. The cloud finally opened up to let sun coming in. Last minute sunset scene. I only had a few minutes for this.

Temecula Old Town

Temecula Old Town is one of the oldest town in Southern California.

We went there once a few years ago and there were not many people around. This time, the street was crowded.

A few miles east is the wine country, lots of wine yard. This season may not be good time to visit. Perhaps we will go back again during the summer.

I used my longer zoom and snapped a few quiet scenes trying to avoid the crowd.

Broadway, San Diego

We don't go to downtown San Diego very often, especially walk on the street. I don't have any pictures of it so far.

This is the next day of Christmas Day, Jan 26, 2012. It was a chilly rainy morning. On the way for grocery shopping., I decided to drive through the Broadway and see what I would see. I was thinking to get out of my car and walk for a while, then changed my mind to just watch those in front of my car when I stopped at the red light.

At that particular cold early morning, there were more homeless people than I expected on the street.

Bernardo Winery

Bernardo Winery, located in Rancho Bernado, San Diego.  It perhaps the oldest winery in Southern California. I heard this place from our friend several years ago when we just moved to San Diego. I took a few pictures at that time and thought to go back for more, but never did until last year.

Later last year, 2012, I have been to the winery a few times. Every time, I was amazed by what I saw and never got disappointed. Just a wonderful place to have a walk, and for some good pictures.

When I search the internet for more background information and images, I saw a picture taken by a local professional photographer. Well, then I thought I would take a challenge to see if I could take something equally good or better.

This first one, the day I posted on 500px, it reached the popular, and of course one of my favorite photos.
