California Coast along Pacific Coast Highway 1 just outside of Carmel.

One of the most beautiful scenes of our drive up the coast. The photo does not do it justice. I’ll just have to go back and give it another shot.

If not the fact you are surrounded by trees, the sense of being outdoors is further enhanced at the floor level with casts of green from the trees above,  earthy stones inlaid with the floor, and spots of sunlight just as you would find in an actual forest

Last light in Malibu. El Matador State Beach at sunset. Malibu, California. .

I waited for more drama from the waves crashing on the rocks but the ocean could not muster up a bigger wave before the light vanished.

We drove form LA to Monterey and it took most of the day because we had to stop for all of the photo ops along the the way like this one. If anyone knows the name of this bridge please leave it in the comments.

Zuma Beach at sunset. Malibu, California.
.
.
A beautiful sunset to end the day. A trip of al trips for my family and myself. Like the Sonoran desert and its surrounding mountains, I am humbled by oceans grandness and power. To feel it completely you must enter the water and it is the most amazing experience. I realize this happens every minute of the day for a lot of people, but for this desert dweller, it is like a new and refreshing experience every time i get the chance to do it.

This shot taken with my iPhone 7 Plus, a Moment wide lens, and edited with Polarr.
