The Camera in the Carry On - @idahohales

I travel for work.  A lot.  This past week I hit a major milestone: I "earned" Lifetime Platinum Status with Marriott.  Basically this means that I spent over two years in Marriott hotels and accrued over 2 million points.  Yippee...  Not that I have anything against Marriott.  In fact I really like their hotels.  It just represents too much time away from my wife and kids.  Several months ago, I began thinking about what I could do to make my work trips better.  Not sure why it took me so long to come to this obvious conclusion, but I began packing my Nikon D750 with a Nikkor 50 mm prime lens.  It is not a fancy set up, but it allows me a great deal of versatility while I bounce around the Pacific Northwest.

This particular shot was taken in the La Jolla Cove area.  I had to attend a conference and it does not take too much arm twisting to get me to the ocean.  After meetings, I wandered down to the shore and began scouting around.  I found these rocks getting pummeled by the waves and thought it would make a really cool shot.  I wanted to capture some of the reds and pinks from the sunset amidst the moving water.  This was one of my favorite shots of the evening.  I hope you like it too. 

What have been some of the cool places you have photographed on your work trips?
