Big Sur Morning

SmugMug up to 27 Million Views!

I’ve gotten so many nice notes from SmugMug converts. I wrote my SmugMug Review about a year ago, and I’m still very happy with the transition. Already (and thanks to you!) we’ve gotten over 27 million views on SmugMug!

The SmugMug people have been very nice and seen the thousands of people we have sent over there. They gave all of you a SmugMug Coupon of “STUCKINCUSTOMS” to save 20% on all the packages. Pretty good stuff I think… it’s a family-run company that loves beginner and pro photographers, so if you’ve been thinking about a new way to share your photos, give them a good look!

Daily Photo – Big Sur Morning

I had spent the entire previous day at Hearst Castle in California — all the way until the sun went down. That messed up my plans a bit to drive up Highway 1 and take in the sites with my camera. So I drove just about an hour or so north and found a little lodge right on the rocky coast. It was one of those mysterious late-night checkins where you can’t see what’s around you, but you have a feeling it’s kinda awesome. The next morning, I woke up early to see this! I hopped over a fence and hiked along the top of the cliffs to see the various views… Just as the sun was coming up, I grabbed this one from under a tree.

    WOW, that’s some audience in a short period of time Trey… congratulations to all at ‘Stuck in Customs’ πŸ™‚
    Wonderful image, has all the essence of a beautiful new day… I especially like the swell around the rocks in the foreground, nice!

  • An amazingly breath taking shot πŸ™‚

  • Fantastic shot, I love the ocean, but i never really get to be around it much living so far inland… Makes me want to jump in the car and head down to Kakaniu for a weekend, haha. Just realized that a link I shared yesterday was a dud, so here we go again:

  • Pacific Coast Highway through the Big Sur area is a breathtaking drive. Highly recommended for photographers. I grabbed this shot a couple years ago on my way from LA to Carmel:

  • I really enjoy that sunshine creeping in from the left hand side of the shot – that’s warmed me up on this cold morning – nice work πŸ™‚

  • Beautiful view and gentle colours!

  • Patrick Ahles

    I sure don’t anything like this in the neighborhood! Great shot!

  • it is too blue (too cold) for me, after an automatic color correction it looks more natural and not less impressive. try it

  • Love the shot!

  • Great Stuff. Man, Andy – you’re right. The bit of sunrise really does it. Amazing work.

  • been there trey, this is the most amazing place, even if you see it in person and not in HDR.

  • Gail in Montana

    Congratulations on the SmugRug hits, Trey. Love this photo, not to blue for me!!! Thanks for sharing. πŸ™‚

  • So beautiful and peaceful Trey, awesome shot!

  • Dave Onkels

    Post Ranch?

  • Thanks! – No this is not the post ranch — I think it’s called the lone pines inn or something.

  • Really cool shot. Kind of looks like a fantasy landscape.

  • Z

    Gorgeous. I love California

    Have been along this stretch many times and it never fails to inspire. Trey, would love to see you do a series on the 17 Mile Drive along Pebble Beach. There’s much more than just the Lone Cypress.
