Shot with a simple point & shoot camera. Coloring is mostly natural - hardly had to do any post-work to it.

Certainly is! I drove down the coast from San Francisco to Los Angeles - it was so beautiful! The way the fog just poured from the water along the cliffs was amazing.

And there is no shortage of things to take photos of!

For a sneak peak at the coast trip:

I certainly was! It was an unexpected one - on the way to a resturant that's on the coast. I just had to stop and get a photo!!

Thanks for the comments =)

I took Rt 1 down the coast of CA and hopped on Route 101 toward the end to speed up the trip a little bit.

(Looking back at google maps)

Looks like Rt 101 goes from WA to CA, then goes a bit more inland as Rt 1 stays on the coast. Someone native to CA may know better than me though...
