Terra-cotta Fountain

The December evening the above image was captured was the epitome of a winter in San Diego. As my neighbor's relatives talked about the temperature in negative degrees back home, the "California Cool" weather was perfect for my buddy and me to step outside and stroll through Balboa Park. The lighting was a little mushy throughout the day, but when evening rolled around, the pink pastels painted the sky above Balboa Park. The leading lines of the terra-cotta tiles draw the eye towards the fountain and the pink background. A slow shutter speed was necessary to properly expose the scene, intensify the pastel clouds, and blur the fountain.
