Fourth Floor, NICU, UCI Medical Center
My wife pointed out this great view from the 4th floor at UCI Medical Center a couple weeks ago. I took these photos through a dual pane window without a tripod after sunset. Impossible, you say? My technique was to place the front of the lens hood securely against the glass to anchor the camera (kind of a make-shift tripod, I guess) and to reduce glare off the glass. The sky and clouds were so incredible that evening... so linking to Skywatch Friday. Click on the link to check out great skies from around the world!
1/15 second exposure, f 3.2, ISO 800

You may be wondering why I was (and have been) hanging out in the NICU at UCI? Well, let me introduce you to my granddaughter (my first grandchild): beautiful Lillian! She got off to a rough start and had to spend the first 4 weeks in the hospital, but we have her home now and we feel so incredibly fortunate to have a healthy granddaughter after everything she has been through!
