"Victoria Beach—when history and nature blends together."
Victoria Beach in Laguna Beach, CA is one of the most beautiful beaches in southern California. The beach is distinguished by the Victorian Tower which was built in 1962. The tower structure has a Victorian lighthouse style. I captured this photo after sunset and I tried to show how the tower blends with the beach cliff, the steps footprints on the sand added mysterious lead lines to the tower.

"Antarctic Night."
Once I decided to spend the winter in Antarctica, I figured I would get a good view of the Milky Way, see some auroras and hope- fully some shooting stars. I never thought I would get to brave the cold on a calm night and see all three in pure darkness.
