Highway 1 - Southern California 2014 (Part 1)

At the end of 2014 (around Christmas time), I took a trip to Southern California and took a lot of great photos. I went to famous places such as the Los Angeles, San Diego, USS Midway Museum, Huntington Library, Hollywood Walk of Fame, etc... The photos from this road trip will be split into many parts. I hope you enjoy.

Normally people from the SF Bay Area will take Highway 5 down to Los Angeles, but I decided to take the scenic Highway 1 which follows California's coastline since I am a photographer and there are a lot of photography opportunities on that route compared to Highway 5 which runs through the middle of nowhere. The photos for today are all scenery from Highway 1.

First up is Carmel River State Beach on the side of SR-1 in Carmel, CA. Here is a few photos of the beach and the ocean.
