California state route 1 along the pacific coast is the one of the most beautiful scenic drive in united states. If you are into seascape, landscape, wildlife , history photography then it worth every gas gallon you will spend :). I drove the route for two times and did not cover even 60% of the scenes and landmark that I like to photo shoot.
one of the known nature landmark on the route is the Morro Rock located offshore the Morro Bay city, this a real huge massive volcanic rock that basically looks like an island by its own. I did not have the time to stay till sunset, so I just take a casual picture in mid day to show the massive size so I was not pay attention to the quality of light and the result. If you pay close attention, there is a boat on the lower right of the picture that looks tiny compared to the size of the rock. Click on the image for actual size
I also spotted this beautiful white bird (I think it is called Great Egret), and I liked its pose and reflection on the water. Click on the image for actual size
