Some of the best photography in Northern California is found along Highway One, north from the Golden Gate Bridge, through Marin, Sonoma and Mendocino counties. Follow Highway One as far north as it goes before it leaves the coast and heads inland. The Shoreline Highway is California’s scenic route along the coast - one of the most beautiful highways (paved 2-lane winding road) in America.
For newsletter Issue #133 - California's North Coast, I returned to my favorite spots and explored places new to me. My ten-day trip concentrated on photographing beaches, parks, coastal villages and lighthouses I’d never photographed before. This tunnel of cypress is located north of Fort Bragg. GPS coordinates are provided and mile post numbers will take you there. Stay overnight in Fort Bragg and plan to be out there mid-morning for the best light.
