Stunning Green Waterfall Dazzles Strawberry Hill

Another new day, another new beginning. While on a nice, serene walk, I spotted this green-hued scenic view of the waterfall in Strawberry Hill. I loved how clean and clear everything looked and decided to sharpen and brighten the image for a more sleek finish.

Treasure Island's Sparkling Skyscraper View of the City

Treasure Island can seem so far and removed from the city--and yet so close and within reach! It always offers the best views of the San Francisco skyline and this day was no different. I decided to have a little bit more fun and add pink effects to this photo along with some sun flare and sparkles. The aftermath? A soft, pastel, dreamy scenery to match.

Twilight Lights Glow in the Space Needle

Post-sunset always, always has the best light. Loved how blue the sky was at this time! It's perfect with a bit of a darkness and the lights are slowly starting to shine from the Space Needle.

Unfiltered Life: Orange Sunset Glows by the Still Waters

Always live your life authentically.

But never be afraid to spice up an image with a filter.

The sky finally cleared up and I captured this photo of the sunset by the bay. The original photo was a lighter icier pastel shade of blue and yellow, but I wanted to give it a more tropical summer feel so I added yellow-green plus orange tones and extra contrast to give it an extra boost.

The Palm Trees and Cacti Island Mix

Want to explore the desert or relax on the beach? Why not...have both? This beautiful garden has a mixture of cacti and palm trees right next to each other, offering the perfect contrast on a bright blue sunny (and non-shady) day.

One of the coolest cities with dazzling, colorful lights all over the vicinity. This view, over 90 floors above, was no exception. The outline of North Chicago, Lake Michigan, and all the magnificent night lights stand out quite magically--making for an epic feast for the eyes.
