Like it a lot. I'm planning a coastal drive from LA to San Francisco next year and am planning on stopping on route to take some long exposure shots. With all the great scenery in the area I'm sure I'll be stopping every hundred yards or so, much to the wife's annoyance!
Thank you, I was pretty happy with the result, especially considering I barely knew what I was doing
The trip sounds great; I hope you're planning on more than one day. I see you're from the UK, so you may or may not be aware of the bad traffic in the LA & SF areas, plus much of the road up the coast, Hwy 1, will be slow going because of the curves even if you weren't pulling over constantly. It's well worth it though! One main issue is that the weather is unpredictable. It can be nice and sunny throughout California, but overcast on the coast.
I visit the coast often, feel free to PM me if you have questions. I probably have bookmarks of websites for lesser-known photography spots, too.
