Photographing the Sunset on Highway 1

Big Sur State Park - Search Nearby - Added by Brett Rothmeyer

Nature's ultimate way to end a great day of being outsideWatching the sunset from this area is amazingYou can easily pick any spot along Hwy. 1 and make it happen

If you find yourself on Highway 1, driving down or up the California coast somewhere between Big Sur and Monterey Bay, I suggest stopping and waiting for the sun to fade. Chances are, if you are in the area already than you have probably spent your day taking advantage of one of the amazing state parks either hiking, surfing, or camping. The best way to end any good outdoor experience is a stunning sunset.

Along Highway 1, you will find quite a few pull overs and parking spots to take in the scenery; many of them have access trails to the beach or to the rocky cliffs over looking the water. Try to pick one with some nice big rocks to sit on and let nature do its thing.
