The Bixby at Dusk

The Pacific Coast Highway between Carmel and San Simeon is one of the most scenic coastal drives I have ever been on. The shear rocky cliffs, the blue ocean crashing below, and a road with the kind of twists and turns that drivers of small German sports cars only dream about.

 

It is epic.

 

Just outside of Big Sur stands the Bixby Bridge, a rather impressive piece of civil engineering (considering it was built in 1932) with an even more impressive view. The fog was setting in and dusk was rapidly changing to night when I stopped to take this shot. It took a little while to get it just right with the light trails from the oncoming traffic streaking across the bridge.

 

But in the end...SUCCESS!
