Bixby Bridge in Big Sur California is probably photographed as much as many other famous bridges, at least if you count on how many people go over it, the percentage of them stopping and taking a photo is more likely very close the rest of them. Given that it is remote and you have to get there somehow via your own transportation, it does not get as many people as bridges in large cities, still I bet most tourists will make a stop somewhere around it to take a photo. I actually took a few photos, some from the far away south side, some from the far away north, and couple just next to it. You can see couple of them under “Big Sur” category already published.
So if you didn’t spend all your precious cash on all kind of stuff then stop by my photo gallery and see if any of 700+ photos might be a good gift for upcoming holiday season. Just saying.
Somewhere in California
I actually do not remember the exact location of where I took this photo. Can anyone identify the name of the bridge for me and even better provide coordinates? I’d like to put exact geo coordinates in the photo.
Last night we watched “Chasing Mavericks” and it made me think about California coastline. This photo is not exactly the same area where they do a lot of surfing, but it made think about this spot as I watched the movie. We stopped here during the bright sunny day, not the best time for photography, but when you have only one day to cover a lot of places it is hard to be picky. There were quite a few people on the short trail that takes from the parking to this view and even during the day there were a few folks with serious cameras.
Back in March I shared the first Bixby Bridge image that I took last year on our short trip to Big Sur. It felt like a good time to come up with the second image. Almost the same view, just a bit farther from it. HW 1 is full of photo opportunities and we tried to take advantage of most of them.
