This is one of the most beautiful spots you’ll find on the drive along California State Route 1. It’s located where Little Sur River empties into the Pacific Ocean, only few miles from Carmel and Monterey.
This was taken the third time I drove by Little Sur River Beach in the last two years, and finally, on this day luck was on my side with the regard to weather. The third time’s a charm, I guess. It was an unusually warm January evening – windy but warm with thick, white clouds covering the horizon but leaving the rest of the sky exposed and illuminated by the sun.
It took a lot of willpower to give up this view and pack my tripod so I could drive into the fog and clouds to another spot along the California coast.
