Famous for its tidal pools, wild life and spectacular sunsets Pacific Grove lies on the southern end of Monterey Bay. Just west of the famous Monterey Bay Aquarium and historic Cannery Row, Pinos Point provides a stunning view of the Pacific. The coast here is battered, warn and nearly always windswept but is one of the most spectacular sites along California's vast coast. It's one of the better vistas for spotting whales migrating along the coast.

In this shot, a lone photographer who was kind enough to wear clothing that matched the surroundings can be seen if you look hard enough.

There is nothing quite as serene as sitting alongside Lovers Point along the Monterey Bay watching the sunset as the surf rolls in. The sound of waves crashing upon the ageless rocky coastline as seagulls call to each other as they soar in the light breeze. This little park lies just west of Monterey in the small seaside village of Pacific Grove at the very tip of the Monterey Peninsula. The small path that runs alongside the rocky shore makes the perfect romantic setting as couple walk slowly hand in hand pausing often to gaze out over the bay to watch the otters play in the kelp or the occasional gray whale swim by. If I were to recommend a honeymoon location to anyone, this would be the spot. The road that runs around the peninsula is lined with quaint inns, bed and breakfasts, summer rentals, numerous paths, a small lighthouse and all within walking distance of the famous Cannery Row and the Monterey Bay Aquarium. If you're in love, it's the perfect place to share your time together. It is something you will always remember fondly.

A kelp filled wave crashes against aged and cracked rocks along the coast just north of Big Sur California. A small rock balances, teetering on the edge of a sea stack. In the far distance the Rocky Creek Bridge which is often mistaken and labeled as the Bixby Bridge due to similar arched construction. However the Bixby Bridge is further south along Highway One and considerably bigger. This section of the California coast is worth visiting just to see the wide variety of blue the Pacific Ocean produces in pristine waters. It's a painters delight or dilemma when considering what colors to mix to get the perfect mix that you see here so easily generated by nature. A kelp forest just beyond the waves can be seen and with a pair of binoculars you can see the rangers of the kelp forest, the California Sea Otters, continually protecting the kelp from sea urchins that feed on the roots of the plants.

Storm clouds blow over the Monterey Peninsula creating a beautiful sunset as a seagull glides along the coastline in a sublime sky. In the distance a rainstorm pours down on the ocean near Carmel. Monterey is known for epic sunsets and incredible scenery. I've never seen a Monterey sunset that wasn't awe inspiring. Granted many summer days there is no sunset at all due to fog but even the fog has its own beauty.

Nestled in the coastal foothills of the Monterey Bay is the small but famous town of Carmel by the Sea, most often simply called Carmel. The town is filled with art galleries, specialty shops, and tiny but expensive homes. It's been made famous by a number of artist, writers, poets and actors who have made Carmel their home. It's sandy white beaches give way to a rocky coastline with pristine waters and dramatic views. Fog moves in and out of the area minute by minute and it's sometimes a frustrating place to photograph. However on this day we lucked out and were able to get a small opening near one of my favorite locations where the land is pen to the public with great view of the crashing waves below. Wildflowers grow during the spring months right up to the edge of cliffs that slowly crumble in to the Pacific below.
