My wife and I recently spent 10 days in California. We spent 3 nights in San Francisco, 1 night in Big Sur, and 5 nights in LA. In addition to my camera, I took my tripod along as well b/c I has looked up a couple spots I wanted to shoot the Golden Gate Bridge. I was also super excited to drive the PCH from SF to LA b/c the last time I tried to do it, the PCH was closed. Big Sur was absolutely gorgeous! I'll be posting some of my favorites as I complete them.

I absolutely loved The Palace of Fine Arts! It was so peaceful and a lot larger than I imagined.

Nice. We went there in 2010 and i'm still nostalgic for San Francisco and Sausalito. Did you get any pictures of the part of the PCH that slid down near the Bixby Bridge?

Look at just SOME of the photographers fighting for spots to shoot the Golden Gate Bridge from this spot (I had looked up to shoot from this spot), there were just as many behind me

Beautiful collection of images, especially McWay falls and the costal shots.

We were just in the Big Sur/Monterey/Carmel area a couple weeks ago. I love that area.

"View of Big Sur from our cabin" in post #6 - assuming some form of rental can you share details of cabin? Perhaps by PM. I am doing near identical trip in August.

Nice photos!

Thank you. Yes I absolutely loved Big Sur. I wish we could have spent more time there. Next time we will plan to do just that.

The entire album of my favorite shots from the trip is here:

Brings back memories of our trip in 2009 - 3 nights in SF, then drive down PCH with an overnighter in Morro Bay, and onto 4 nights in LA. Absolutely loved it.

I didn't seem to get shots as good as these, though ! Great set, well done.

Awesome set of pics. I like what you did with the 2nd one looking thru the fence at GG bridge. Looks like you had a fun time out here.
