Two additional shots from a recent trip to the west coast of scenic images along the Pacific Coast Highway. I haven’t done the drive down the PCH in over 20 years. I knew it was beautiful and a bit slower than taking the 101 (unless there was a crash somewhere along the highway). I also recognized that I’d be stopping several times along the way to grab some photos, so I allowed extra time for the trip.
These two images looking out over the water offered some interesting clouds or a section of coastline.
The image above was enhanced in Lightroom with the Dehaze slider and some contrast.
The second shot is a single-file HDR image created in Photomatix Pro 5 which greatly improved on a flat image captured under cloudy conditions.
