I recently went on a road trip in the Golden State, and I saw quite a few beautiful sights. One of my favourite places was Bixby bridge. Now, you might have seen Bixby bridge before, but you don't know where. Bixby bridge is known as one of the most photographed places on the west coast, and a popular site for car commercials.
A little bit further into Big Sur, and you'll see Pfeiffer beach, which has quite a few interesting rock formations. Pfeiffer beach has one particularly interesting formation, where, if you're lucky enough, you can catch the sun shining through at sunset.
Now, on the way back from Pfeiffer beach, I stopped and got out and looked at the stars. Being as remote as it is, there was very little light pollution to block the Milky Way, and it was beautiful. In a big city, you usually see quite a few stars right? A few hundred if you're lucky. But out there, the whole night sky was obstructed by the light of a billion stars, and if you looked closely you could see the edge of our smoky galaxy.
I really recommend a drive around Big Sur, and even if you're not an avid photographer, it looks just as good in person.
Thanks for reading my blog! I just got back from taking some photos, and learning more about photography. I took my first city photos, and I believe that it provides a different feel from the nature and landscape photography that I normally do. Anyway, from now on, I'll be posting every week. This week's photo is of a small sparrow from the Ngorongoro national park. This picture has a bokeh effect (to read more on the bokeh effect, click "Read More")
Welcome to My Lens and I! My first photo is of Lake Natron. Lake Natron is a soda lake in Tanzania. The mountain in the background is the volcano Lengai, worshipped by the Masai. The pink swath on the lake is a flock of lesser flamingoes. It was a very clear day and this photo was very lucky as the sun didn't glare into my lens. Any comments will be appreciated. Please feel free to ask questions that I will answer in later posts!
