Hotel Del Coronado Holiday Lights

A group of San Diego DSLR group members got together for a short walk around the Hotel Del Coronado at sunset. I always enjoy the get togethers that the group has coined Dinner and Clicks. I love night photography. The Dinner and Clicks is special. Good folks sharing a common interest and topping it off with good conversation and good food. That adds up to a lot of good!
The sunset was spectacular this evening. Many cell phones held high in hopes of capturing the beauty.

Nature puts on the most spectacular shows!

The Del Coronado all spiffed up in Christmas lights.

A special Dr. Seuss sculpture exhibit is around the hotel.

You're a mean one Mr. Grinch!

This isn't "the" Hotel Del Coronado tree. This was a small tree in the lobby of the convention rooms.

I have uploaded a few more images from the outting here. For my photographer friends the starfish ornament shot in the link was taken at 1/15 second, iso 3200 hand held! I really do enjoy my Pentax k-5.


  1. beautiful...almost feel like I was there! <3 Fritzie

  2. Beautiful. Great shot of the Del's lighting.

    Now how about changing the name of the group, just a bit, to punny but easier-to-say "the Dinner Clique"

  3. Some nice shots. I especially like the last one with the fountain. Sorry I missed it.

  4. Beautiful captures LaRee! I gotta make it down there. :)

  5. Dang, LaRee, those are FANTASTIC! Good work!

  6. Very nice LaRee. I really like the colors in the sky, and you got the Grinch quite well. The starfish turned out very nicely too. Much better than my version. We had a fun time with you and the others.

  7. Thank you my friends! Frank, I always have a great time out and about with you and it was so nice for Heather to be able to join us for this outing. Good times!
