Carmel in the Evening

Daily Photo – Carmel in the evening

I took a California road trip up Highway 1 from Los Angeles to San Francisco. On the way is the famous little town of Carmel. It’s right by Pebble Beach, 17-mile drive, and a bunch of other amazing little places. The town is very quaint and cool… a lovely place to walk around and explore with your camera!

This was my last shot of the night. After this, I stopped in a small Italian restaurant to eat some tasties while I edited some photos. This is one of my favorite things to do after a day of shooting… just relaxing… having someone bring me coffee and snacks… headphones on… editing away. Good times!

High Dynamic Range Photo

  • I really like the composition here…Processing is standart – excellent. ๐Ÿ™‚ Great texture on the roof! Excellent shot Trey!

  • Simon Morris

    Yes great composition, coupled with the warm glow from the ‘sweet shop’ makes it so inviting…”I’ll have a 1/4 pound of midget gems, ta muchly” ๐Ÿ™‚

  • How quaint indeed – a fine place for a post-photography chillout. My favourite chillout is Glasgow’s ‘Solid Rock Cafe’ where I have been known to disappear to at lunchtimes with my laptop.

    Trey, I was watching TV yesterday and saw a commercial for Fujifilm’s new 3D camera – i’m really not sure what to think of these to be honest. I feel the 3D thing is still a bit of an expensive gimmick, but I’d need to look into them more. Is it something you would embrace if it could be used to enhance the HDR technique?

  • Wow! this photo is so cute, like in the movie.

  • Jim

    Great evening Shot, those can be so hard to do and you make it look easy. I played golf at Pebble but was not doing photogrqaphy then. Quaint is the word, here is my quaint shot of the week.

  • Gail in Montana

    Very warm picture, Trey. I made it my desktop because it looks so Christmas like!! I love this one, very good job. Hi to Casusan, whenever you post ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Have to agree with Filip, great texture on the roof and nice perspective.

  • Great composition of a quaint almost fairy tale like scene.

  • Looks like a scene for a xmas card. I like the pink shade color in the top left of the picture. very natural.

    Sooo beautiful Trey – this is just how it looks there to me – charming!

  • Carmel-by-the-Sea is such a unique and enchanting town. Hopefully you stopped by the Carmel Mission. It’s another great photo location:

  • Andy – yes I think the 3D thing misses the mark…

  • Linda Castellani

    Did you run into Clint Eastwood, Trey?

  • Now this is a winner. This shot is merely begging me to walk in and grab a bite!

  • hehe no — didn’t see him roaming the streets !

  • Chris

    I love the look of this picture. It definitely gets me in the mood for Christmas.

  • Was in Carmel for a wedding in July and took a shot in this exact same location. Unfortunately mine is no where near as good as this one. Need to keep working!

  • Stephanie

    Went here for my birthday last year- the candy is pretty great but you photo is obviously much better! Mine didn’t turn out this great, but yours definitely captures the whimsical feeling ๐Ÿ™‚
