THE BIG SUR, THE USA: California gleaming : Photography has been a hobby of mine for years, mostly because it gives me an excellent excuse to travel the country, which is what brought me to this spot. I drive this part of the Pacific Coast Highway in California quite often. It’s one of my favourite stretches of road in the world. This time I was at the tail-end of a seven-month road trip around the US, on my way to Seattle from LA. To me, there is a beauty in the Pacific unmatched anywhere, with the ocean leaving the coastline and reaching out into its incomprehensible vastness. That evening, the clouds had opened up to the west, giving way to the golden sunset light.
