After we left Point Arena, we drove further south on Highway 1, down to a campground in Sonoma County, California. We got there, found a campsite, and headed to the ocean shore with the sky looking promising. On a photography road trip you are at the mercy of mother nature. Capturing the light is what photography is all about. Tonight and tomorrow morning made the trip, the light was gorgeous.
Day 4 of our Road Trip started off wet, gray and cloudy, it rained hard all night. We left Burlington Campground in Humboldt Redwoods State Park and headed for Westport on the California coast. Highway 1 from Leggett to Westport reminds me of the old McKenzie Highway here in Oregon. It has enough curves for a road that is much longer, one hour to travel 28 miles (ca. 45 km) was curvy enough.
Day 2 of our Photography trip over Spring Break. We spent the night at Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park and got up early for the promise of a colorful sky at sunrise at Klamath Cove. Clouds had moved in overnight more than what was forecast, so I settled for what Mother Nature gave me.
We left Sunset Bay in the morning and headed south for the Redwoods. We drove the winding Seven Devils Road towards Bandon. The morning was gray and drizzly, but started clearing up as we got closer to Bandon. I wanted to scout out some photography spots on the way south, so we planned to stop along the way.
