El Sur Grande (10 photos)

Some black & white impressions from an afternoon stop at Big Sur’s Julia Pfeiffer-Burns State Park, and later on Pfeiffer Beach, during the May 2013 road trip up to Seattle with my friend Douglas. It was blue-skied and clear so we didn’t feel too compelled to spend a lot of time there (and these conditions are the reason for the black & white process, obviously), and decided to push on to Monterey after dinner.

“El Sur Grande” (The Big South) is the original Spanish name for the area, which eventually became mixed into the mashup “Big Sur”, which combines English and Spanish. It refers to the wild and rugged area south of the city of Monterey that only became more accessible with the completion of the scenic road that is now known as Highway 1.
