Bixby Bridge

The other night I found myself driving north on the Pacific Coast Highway well after dark. That's because I was driving south to enjoy the scenery and sunset hours earlier and on account of the natural beauty I couldn't stop driving. Finally I came to a section before Hurst Castle and decided to turn back on account of some road construction and that I had a flight out of San Jose early in the morning. Along the way back I stopped many times to take pictures of the scenery. For me it was an epic adventure I'll not soon forget. This is Bixby Bridge which was built in the 1930s. To get this I stood on the edge of a cliff in total darkness. Fortunately I had taken some similar photos hours before during daylight so I had an idea of how close to the edge I could get. Maybe not the wisest thing I've ever done, but I was in the zone and, well, it is what it is.
