Majestic California: The Beauty of Big Sur


“Colors Aplenty” (California’s Central Coast)

Hello Friends! It’s been way too long since I’ve posted something. I’ve missed conversing with you all. Hope everyone is doing great. 🙂


“I am a rock, I am an island” (California’s Central Coast)

Recently, my wife and I took our three-year old daughter, and 8-month old son on a mini road trip up the California coast to a region called Big Sur. This immaculate 85-mile stretch of wild, pristine coastline has been dubbed the “greatest meeting of land and water in the world.”

We barely scratched the surface with our visit (as you would expect with two small kids.)  So, my photos only reflect a small portion of the vast wilderness. Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy the images as much as I enjoyed taking the photos. Have a wonderful day!

  1. Kevin: Thanks for the, like, on Artie the curious Squirre at Elm Drive Images. The New Year came and went while I was counting sheep. Went to bed @ 9PM. Some genius did blow off a huge bunch of M80s or Cherry Bombs about 10 PM and almost blew the wife and I out of Bed.

  2. Hi Kevin! 🙂 Thank you for liking “The Witch’s Well” and “Wild Turkey Wandering.” Fantastic photos! Some of California’s beaches and coastal areas are magnificent. Big Sur must be even more impressive to see in person. Happy Holidays to you and your family! 🙂

  3. Gorgeous pictures! And congrats on your new son! I bet he’s just as adorable as his sister. Has it been that long since you’ve posted? Or are you that good at keeping ‘secrets’!? 🙂

  4. It is hard work to have toddlers, so understandable, that you don’t find time to post so much, Kevin. Really a beautiful place, as you visited, I could use days there, just enjoying the view and maybe come a little closer to the see 🙂

  5. Beautiful pictures. I’m probably late on saying congratulations on your new son. I’ve missed seeing your amazing pictures and am happy to know all is well. I am sure life has been busy doing more than changing those diapers. A happy time for your family, I know.

  6. Wonderful photos, as usual. Your photo of the Dream Fort shows that you still can see the world through the eyes of a little boy.. A gift indeed. Your enthusiasm for all the beauty that God has given us to admire and appreciate is inspiring. Always enjoy your trips and keep the photos coming!

    • Thank you! I try my best to view the world from a sense of wonderment and innocence. It is not easy sometimes, that’s for sure. But, when I visit places like Big Sur – I am amazed at the beauty that the world has to offer us. 🙂


    • Mine too! I guess that’s why I put them up top. Didn’t realize it, until your comment. Thanks Barbara….that is very sweet and kind of you to say! So nice to hear from you. Be well, my friend. 🙂
