Big Sur has been called “The Greatest Meeting of Land and Sea”.  This rugged coastline south of San Francisco is one of the most beautiful in the world.  The scenery is spectacular!

About Pam
Richard and Pam lived in the San Francisco Bay Area 14 years (1987-1999 and 2008-2011). They lived in Florida 13 years previously, until returning in July 2011 to present. They hope their photography will encourage you to get out and discover nature's beauty in your own backyard, parks, and wild places.

      I highly recommend this drive! A person should plan to go slowly and spend all day driving south from Monterey to Cambria. Peak wildflower season is April/May.

    The “Fields of Gold and Turquoise Water” is my favorite, The peaking rock is so beautiful, and the colors complement themselves so well. Thanks for posting.

      Thank you so much! I just couldn’t get over the colors that spring day. There is so much to see and it looks different every single time – always wonderful!

  3. I just watched a National Geographic documentary on Big Sur and thought what a great place to photograph! Thanks for the pictures!

      I’d be pleased to have you post a link. I’d love for other people to see such a beautiful place!

      Don’t forget a couple of other stops at Big Sur – scroll down or search this blog for posts on Pink Sand Beach and Garrapata Beach. Yet to be posted are two stops at the southern end of Big Sur in Cambria – Hearst Castle and Piedras Blancas elephant seal colony.
