Photo of the Day: Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo

I visited San Diego in February for a conference, and got to visit Cabrillo National Monument on an evening field trip. The lights of the city were gorgeous from the point overlooking the bay, and made for great night photos; but I had the most fun taking pictures of the statue of explorer Juan Cabrillo. I used a long exposure to take this photo,of course, and "painted" the statue with my flashlight to make it show up. It took a lot of trial and error, but I'm very pleased with the result.
