San Diego Sunset Picture (Of Coronado) Will Be In Get Away San Diego’s Next Issue

This is a first for me – to have my picture be selected in a contest – I am so excited!  Granted, mine was not the best picture, but my picture made it as one of the top ten!

I entered a competition that Get Away San Diego posted on their Facebook page, just out of curiousity.  My picture shown above of the sunset near the Hotel Del in Coronado is the reason I just had to write today!  My photo will be published in the next edition of Get Away San Diego .  I don’t think my picture is as good as the other nine that made it into the top ten, but all ten will be shown in the next issue.  However, since this is the first time for me that I have won such a contest, I am ecstatic!  If it’s good enough to be chosen, it’s good enough to be happy about.

My whole family loves the Hotel Del, and Coronado.  Here is my little Chandi on the beach at Hotel Del.

And for all those who would love to see what’s so great about the Hotel Del, here’s some more pictures.

Marilyn Monroe shot one of her movies here “Some Like It Hot”, and this tree is famous partly because of that movie, and Marilyn Monroe.

People love to visit the Hotel Del, and many weddings and parties take place here.

The grounds of this hotel are absolutely stunning!  Do you know you can spend an entire day here, and not be bored?  There’s the beach, restaurants galore, tennis, a swimming pool and of course shops, and the hotel lobby to look at.

Of course, my little Princess belongs here, that’s why I like to bring her time and time again!

Don’t forget that Coronado is just a 15 to 20 minute drive from downtown San Diego, or just a boat ride across – here are some useful tips on how to get around.

I may have said this before, but the Hotel Del is swell!  I am so glad that one of my pictures is going to be published, and I’m glad that it was taken in beautiful Coronado.

 

On another note:

Lately, I have also been toying with another idea….to enter one of my videos into a competition or to make a new one – perhaps of San Diego.  I decided to not enter the competition or attempt making a new video for it, because I can’t go away for 6 months and leave my kids, neither can I take them with me (two of them can’t take six months away from school, and it wouldn’t be fair to take just the youngest one) – so this kind of competition is not meant for me.  Want to know which competition I am referring to?  It’s this one: http://www.mydestination.com/bbb/competition#faq1 and if you want to know who has my full support in this particular competition, it’s Lesley Carter from Bucket List Publications: http://lesleycarter.wordpress.com/2013/02/23/if-you-could-make-someones-bucket-list-dreams-a-reality-would-you/

    I wish you success in the competition!

    Your photos are great. Generally speaking these kinds of photos are not as easy as one might think. I love in it people in form of silhouette. My opinion is that they make the photo. Also afterglow is palpable!

    Other photos in Your post are very beautiful presenting Coronado nicely. The second photo is cute.

      Thank you, Matti! My picture was one of the top ten, and will be featured in the next issue that comes out. As far as any further success for me – the main thing that I can take pride in – is that my picture will be in the publication. That makes me happy in itself, I am proud just to have accomplished such a feat – as this is a first for me, to have a picture of mine in a publication.

      As far as my little Princess’ picture, I have to agree with you – it is very cute, even though I say so myself – I am her biggest fan. I hope you have a fabulous week, and thank you so much for commenting.
