Eleven Great Aerial Photographs of the La Jolla Coast in San Diego

I’ve done quite a bit of aerial photography along the San Diego coastline over the years, most of it via helicopter but some in a fixed wing plane, and my favorite images are clustered around La Jolla. It is no wonder that La Jolla is considered the jewel of San Diego, with its rugged shoreline, luxurious real estate and fabulous beaches. Please enjoy some of my favorite aerial photos of La Jolla, California. All of these images are available as canvas or face-mounted acrylic prints, several up to 60″ in size. Cheers, and thanks for looking!
