Central California Coast – Excerpts from a Photo Shoot

I wanted to share a couple of shots I captured last weekend on a drive my wife and I took along the Central California Coastline. There are a number of “pull-offs” scattered along the coastline and these captures were from one of those.

      It’s such a stunning drive!!! Usually if you are driving between Southern California and Northern California, you take the freeway which is inland quite a ways and much faster, but no where near as beautiful!

    Spectacular! Just seeing how tiny the road is in the distance shows how majestic the coastline is. Alas, I’ve only seen scenes in the movies, not experienced this drive.

      As beautiful as this is along the central coast of California….add forests of lush fir trees with these dramatic bluffs and that’s Oregon’s coastline. All of it is very humbling. Thanks for stopping by!

      Thank you very much! We were headed up to San Jose, so added a day to our trip to take hwy 1 along the central coast from Morro Bay up to Monterey and then inland over to San Jose. Worth the extra time….such a beautiful drive!

    These are incredible “pull offs” Kirt. What an amazing experience it must have been to experience it with the salt air and the sound of the waves. thank for sharing! 😀

    Beautiful captures and blues! The news reported a new study that said people living near blue spaces … ocean, lakes, rivers were the happiest. I’d like to believe living near the mountains is the same!

      I truly think there’s something to the blue, but also to your point on mountains…especially the Rockies! The first thing I pictured when reading your comment was the snow capped Rockies with a vivid blue sky as a back drop!

    Wow, those are beautiful! I have photos that look almost identical to the last two… except that I took them on the opposite coast (Cape Breton Island). I guess the bones of the earth are pretty similar in those two places. 🙂
