Synopsis

The rugged Big Sur coastline is one of the most photogenic in the world. Th e route along Highway 1 dips down to pristine beaches and climbs precariously high above the Pacific, offering sweeping panoramic views. There is also a great variety of wildlife, including gray whales, porpoises, sea lions, and elephant seals. Patient and lucky photographers might also spot endangered California condors riding the thermals. This book describes the best photo locations for novices and professionals alike, beginning with Point Lobos and continuing south to Hearst Castle and San Simeon. Clear directions and detailed maps are here too. Professional photographer Doug Steakley guides you to the right place at the right time of day to get memorable photographs.
