Some of the best photography in Northern California is found along Highway One, called the Shoreline Highway. I recently drove north from the Golden Gate Bridge through Marin, Sonoma, and Mendocino counties, to follow Highway One as far north as it goes before it leaves the coast and heads inland. The Shoreline Highway is California’s slow and scenic route north along the coast–one of the most beautiful highways in America. I’ve driven Highway One many times in the past. I returned to my favorite spots and explored places new to me.
My ten-day trip was about photographing beaches, parks, coastal villages, and lighthouses I’d never photographed before. My favorite season to make this trip is mid-winter. The streams and waterfalls are full, and lighting conditions are always changing, skies are filled with interesting cloud formations, the trails are free of summer tourists, and motel rates are at their lowest.
