Hello,

What are some of the best places to shoot Landscape and Nature photos in Southern California?

Any recommendations / suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Mike

I'm looking for the same thing. I'm in the Los Angeles area and the best places I've found have been places near the ocean and some in the hills around santa monica or malibu...

Heh! How far are you going to roam? There are great scenes all over Southern Cal, but if you have a range you'll need to stay in be a bit specific -- Southern Cal goes from San Fransisco to San Diego and from the ocean, mountains and desert to Nevada and Arizona, and there are very cool locations to shoot all over the region!

Well, when I lived in Northern California, we thought of SF as being "southern"!

Scenic areas would be the Big Sur area (south of Monterey), and the area between LA and San Diego, but specifc areas can be pretty, well, spread out!

santa monica beach would be a cool place with the pier but lot of people. There is this hotel at laguna beach called Montage and when you walk down to the water normally no one there and some cool rock formations with pelicans sitting on top. Also a really nice clean beach. This is were i like to go but im just a beginner so i dont know if it would suit you.
