(PDF with color photos)

Photograph America Newsletter on Point Lobos and Big Sur, California
 
The eerie beauty of wind-swept and twisted Monterey cypress groves can only exist in an environment of salt-sprayed, foggy coolness. These groves, on Point Lobos, are some of the most beautiful locations for photography on the California Coast. Trails are described in detail from Bird Island to Sea Lion Rocks to Whalers Cove. The landscape and seascape photography is outstanding throughout the year!

Next to the spectacular scenery, the most fascinating attraction of Point Lobos for nature photographers is the wildlife. On this rocky peninsula and in the surrounding waters protected within the Reserve, there are about one hundred and seventy-five species of animals and birds.
This newsletter describes the best places for nature photography along the Central Coast from Half Moon Bay through Santa Cruz and south to Big Sur. Eroded sandstone cliffs, lighthouses, monarch butterfly migrations, deep redwood forests, and a rare waterfall that drops into the Pacific Ocean. Tips on visiting the Monterey Bay Aquarium are also included.
