Monterey is situated on the central coast of California with a temperate climate year-round.
It is a scenic California coastal city of 30,000 year-round residents that grows to more than 70,000 people during the peak visitor season from May through October. The city rises from waters of the pristine Monterey Bay to pine forested hillsides with sweeping bay views. The colors in the foreground are unique to this area and attracts visitors to this unique seacoast.

Thanks for visiting.

It's been so long since I had not seen your photos.
I'm glad to discover this, a view of a seascape absolutely superb for me.
There are beautiful colors and a good rule of thirds.
The skyline is excellent and the colors are doing me good, now it's cold here and it's nice to see the sea and sun.
