Today Our Journey Begins

Yesterday, I had the joy of catching the beautiful spring scenes from above the Dana Point Harbor.  I am in the process of learning to shoot my new Canon T6 and was using the standard 18mm-55mm lens that comes with this camera.  I broke the landscape photography rules by shooting these handheld as opposed to utilizing a tripod, (rookie.)  Learning to manipulate the manual settings and getting off of the auto controls.  Here are a couple of my favorite shots from yesterday after some basic edits in Adobe Lightroom CC.
