Fort Bragg, Westport - California's Coast

From 7/17/2013 to 8/2/2013, I took a road trip from the SF Bay Area to Vancouver, BC, Canada. Half of the trip was spent driving up the west coast. On my trip, I visited many famous places such as Seattle, Butchart Gardens, Mount Rainier, and much more. Obviously I got many coastal shots and many places that isn't as famous. The reason I am posting it now is because the high amount of photos I took equaled a high amount of processing time. I took a bit over 2000 photos on the trip. After stitching the panoramas, compositing the HDRs, and picking out photos from the repeats, I have a bit over 1000 photos to show you guys. The photos will be split into parts. I will link you to the previous and next parts on each post just like I did with my Death Valley National Park photos and my Yellowstone/Grand Teton National Park photos. Hope you enjoy this chain of posts!

So after resting for a night in Fort Bragg, CA, I continued my drive up California's coast. The photos for today are from the 2nd day of my trip and are from Fort Bragg and Westport. Most of the shots were taken near SR-1 as I drove up the coast.

After getting up in the morning, I first went ahead and shot some photos in Downtown Fort Bragg.

A photo of SR-1, this is now in Westport. While this highway is not too heavily trafficked, it is still a bit of a risk shooting these shots. I managed to set up and finish the shot around 5 seconds before a car came heading down the freeway. Always have a look out watching for cars when you shoot this!
