Had the opportunity to visit Big Sur and Carmel over New Year's. If you have never been there, it is stunning. If you have, you know what I mean. Though it was stormy, managed to get a few shots when the sun peaked out. Thanks to Doug Steakley for taking me around and showing me some of his best spots.

On the road from Carmel to Big Sur...
This amazing rainbow, (look closely for the double rainbow) showed itself at Pfeiffer State Beach while we were looking the other way, we almost missed it.
Big Sur coastline in the foreground, Bixby Bridge in the background. If you have never driven Hwy 1 through Big Sur, put it on your list of things to do. Stunning doesn't do it justice.

Twice a year, the sun sets just right so you can see the rays shine through this rock formation in Big Sur. Thanks to acclaimed photographer Douglas Steakley for showing this to me at just the right time.
This channel flowing out to the ocean at Pfeiffer State Beach made for an interesting shot...the sky in Big Sur was incredible.
