The Best California Photos

Best California photos: On March 2, 2012 we posted a new feature on this site - Photo of the Week. We intended to present to you the best photos of Central California showcasing the wonders you might see on a visit to Central California. Wildlife, landscapes, attractions - the well-known and the lesser known have been featured.

To celebrate the last two years, we've compiled a video of all the photos that we've shown. Give us a "like" on Facebook and share it with your friends.

Submit YOUR great Central California photo
for the Photo of the coming Weeks!

March 7, 2014

We have no worries that we will soon run out of subjects for the Photo of the Week.

There are so many interesting places and things to see here in Central California that many more years of photos can be featured.

There are the "old standards" like Big Sur and the missions; then there are new things that will someday become favorites.

I can think of one of the latter - the Rock Shed at Pitkins Curve near Limekiln State Park on Highway 1. I haven't yet seen it in person, but the photos I've seen of it are pretty dramatic.

It's an ingenious solution to the never-ending problem of falling rocks blocking the road along the Big Sur coast.

I hope to get there sometime this year and take some pictures, or you could submit your own of the shed or other Central California subject.

Your best California photos...
