15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Big Sur 41
Highway One is one of the more iconic aspects of Big Sur, I wanted to focus on this aspect of the landscape. I chose to shoot under a moonless night so that the land illuminated brightest was that by the headlights of traveling cars. The star trails mirror the congested traffic seen on the Highway now. The structure on the highway is one of the only rock sheds in North America. This view no longer exists, the winter of 2017 ripped away a lane of highway as well as the tiny shoulder where I was positioned for this shot.
