Big Sur Photo Diary

When it comes to photo diary, Big Sur wins over all other similar routes. Cruising along California Central Coast, you simply cannot end up without an impressive Big Sur photo diary (even if you are not particularly fond of the photography or any kind of visual art).



Big Sur

Pristine, diverse, and unbelievably picturesque, Big Sur is arguably the state’s most famous road trip destination. This nearly 90-mile-long rugged stretch of California coastline between Carmel-by-the-Sea and San Simeon allures with its superior natural beauty, tranquility, and sense of complete surrender to these dreamy landscapes. All you need are green cliffs and hills, vast ocean, raging waves, and white-sand beaches. No more and no less…

The classic drive along the coast never gets old. It amazes and overpowers you anew every time you drive here, even if it is your thousandth time. It fills you with gratitude and unimaginable happiness. You feel it every time you pull over to admire the magical views, breathe in the fresh air, and take the picture to expand your Big Sur photo diary. And with some of the most famous places in California and miles after miles of the gorgeous scenery, the number of such spontaneous stops can be endless. So, use your own judgment when choosing between popular, yet packed with tourists lookout points and secluded pull-offs. These little hidden gems always give you a chance to hike down a bit and feel like you have Big Sur all to yourself.

Tips for a More Creative Big Sur Photo Dairy

However, some tourist-popular places simply scream for your attention. The all-too-familiar and most photographed Bixby Bridge, purple-sand Pfeiffer Beach, and McWay Fall are absolute must. But do not follow the crowd in attempt to see these famed landmarks. Instead, stop somewhere in the near distance, for example, on the opposite side of the bridge or the road. It is still close enough to enjoy the view, but pretty far away from the maddening group of tourists.

On top of avoiding frustration when other people constantly get in front of you and block the view, you will get the best vistas from the very uncommon spots. Furthermore, your Big Sur photo diary will greatly benefit from such uncommon angle. The unique pictures, not the uniformed images flooded the Internet, will crown your travel portfolio. And as a bonus, you can forget about excessive cropping and excellent Photoshop skills.

I hope you will travel along and enjoy this Big Sur photo diary.
