Early Evening in Big Sur

Southern Cliffs of Big Sur

July 16, 2016

Big Sur is one of my favorite places. I especially enjoy it in the evening. And I particularly love it in the evening when the weather is cool and overcast (or rainy), and the fog is rolling down the cliffs and a dim yellow sun, muted by that fog, illuminates the rough waters. Our trip to Nepenthe coincided with just this kind of weather. Ever since we left the elephant seal colony above Cambria, the weather had turned chilly, smoky, and overcast. By the time we passed Lucia, the fog was rolling along the water and the sun was turning a smoldering orange. The twisting, narrow, two lane road, running just a few feet from cliffs that drop nearly a hundred feet into the turbulent ocean, makes pulling over for photography a difficult proposition. But we are daredevils. So here are a few images (more photographs, at a different time, are here).
