Highway 1 - Southern California 2014 (Part 3)

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.

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos of any of the photos here, they are up on my portfolio for viewing. To view my best Southern California 2014 photos, use this link. To see all of my Southern California 2014 photos, use this link.

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 continuing on scenery from Highway 1.

Message From the Photographer: Hi guys, I have some bad news. My Nexus 5's radio just broke. As you know I am quite the computer geek too, and I gave it my all trying to fix the device (resetting things to make sure it isn't a software glitch). Anyways, I have failed, and more than likely the physical cellphone radio broke (so it won't connect to my carrier at all). My phone is very important in my photography. I do sometimes use the camera on the phone for some of my photos, use it to navigate to my photo shoot destination, and many times I will need to tether my DSLR to my phone for certain types of photos. I am not asking for donations, but I am asking for some help to build up some funding on a new smartphone. I'm a poor college student. It might seem like I have all the money in the world, but most of my photography equipment is from my parents. I would really like to be able to replace this phone with my own money.

Continuing further down SR-1, I took a series of photos as the sunset dipped below the horizon. The next few sunset shots were all shot at the same place on the side of SR-1 in Big Sur, CA.

This is the last photo from day 1. Photo is shot at dusk on the side of SR-1 near Elephant Seal Vista Point in San Simeon, CA. Since it was dark after this, I proceeded to a faster, less winding route as there were no more scenery opportunities.
