The Lavishness Of Big Sur.
Photo By Suchit Bhatia

  • Title: The Lavishness Of Big Sur.
  • State/Province/Region: California
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Carmel
  • Nearest Town: Carmel
  • Description: Big Sur is a sparsely populated region of the Central Coast of California where the Santa Lucia Mountains rise abruptly from the Pacific Ocean. The name "Big Sur" is derived from the original Spanish-language "el sur grande", meaning "the big south", or from "el paĆ­s grande del sur", "the big country of the south", referring to its location south of the Monterey Peninsula. The terrain offers stunning views, making Big Sur a great destination for photographers. Big Sur's Cone Peak is the highest coastal mountain in the contiguous 48 states, ascending nearly a mile (5,155 feet/1571 m) above sea level, only three miles (4.8 km) from the ocean. This photo was taken during our photography trip covering the Pacific coast highway fondly referred to a US Route 1.
