Institute for Shipboard Education (ISE) – Enrichment Voyage: Central America & the Panama Canal. Nikonians Ultimate Travel Workshop 2011 (UTW-II) Day 1: Sunrise in San Diego. Green Flash at Sunset over the Pacific Ocean.

HDR composite of images of Sunrise over San Diego taken from my hotel room. Three images were taken with a Leica X1 camera (+2, 0, -2 EV) just as the sun started to show above the mountains to the east. The first image was processed with HDR Express, using its Artistic default. The second image was processed with Photomatix Pro using the Compressor Deep settings.

We left San Diego at about 11 AM for Ensenada, Mexico to board the M/V Explorer for our Enrichment Voyage. It was good to see many friends from the Caribbean Enrichment Voyage and Ultimate Travel Workshop I (UTW-I) on board.

After leaving Ensenada for Cabo San Lucas there was a small  green flash at sunset. The image was taken with a Leica V-Lux 20 camera (200 mm equiv). This is a good omen for the SAS Enrichment Voyage — Nikonians Ultimate Travel Workshop II.
