There are many interesting spots in the South Bay to capture a sunset from. Today, I took photographs from the San Ramon Reserve in Palos Verdes Peninsula for the first time.
Most parks in Los Angeles are open from sunrise to sunset, however, Palos Verdes has a particular variation to this rule that allows you to park an hour before sunrise and leave an hour after sunset. This is very convenient because you don’t feel the stress of packing your gear right after the sun goes down.
Palos Verdes Drive East has numerous turnouts where you can park your car for the entire day. However, it is crucial to be cautious while driving on the road as it has several curves, and some drivers tend to exceed the speed limit of 60 miles per hour, which can be dangerous. Although some people walk or ride their bicycles down the road, it is vital to be aware of the high-speed traffic in the area.
I must say that sunsets from this road can be quite impressive. On this occasion, I used two cameras; one to capture the sun setting and another one to capture the fog covering Santa Catalina Island.
There were no clouds but that gives a good reason to go back to the same spot one of these days.
