[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Big Sur is a sparsely populated region of the Central Coast of California where the Santa Lucia Mountains rise abruptly from the Pacific Ocean. The name "Big Sur" is derived from the original Spanish-language "el sur grande", meaning "the big south", or from "el país grande del sur", "the big country of the south", referring to its location south of the Monterey Peninsula. The terrain offers stunning views, making Big Sur a popular tourist destination. Big Sur's Cone Peak is the highest coastal mountain in the contiguous 48 states, ascending nearly a mile (5,155 feet/1571 m) above sea level, only three miles (4.8 km) from the ocean.(From Wikipedia)

Hello Eleu

I like the clarity in this image. This is one of the most gorgeous coastlines in the world. Almost as nice as the Oregon, Washington coast. I was looking for a plane or bird in the image ;)Nice use of the wide angle view. If I could only master my 17-40. A different way to look at the world for sure.

Looks a dream location to take a visit, the coastline, its shape and ruggedness has the appeal for me.


Hello Eleu, beautiful colours of the sea and the fg vegetation grab the eye.
The mountains are imposing as they drop down to the sea.
A part of the world that I would love to see for real.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Eleu,

Nice POV and I like that you left the photo in a large format. Has some real depth with the beach in the foreground.
Very pretty part of the country.
