    I would love to hear about peoples favorite photographically disposed sites in southern California. Just to start things ... take a look at
    http://www.pashnit.com/ This site is actually a directory of great motorcycle rides (all over) but each is annotated with photographs. It's NOT a photography site, but I've found it to be helpful in educating me to locations that have potential. And if you're a rider, it's value added.

    The roads listed on that website offer a lifetime of shooting. I would also add just about anywhere along PCH. From your home within an hour or so, Joshua Tree, Laguna Beach, San Diego, inland, the mountains, Palm Springs area Mt. San Jacinto. You could just ride and shoot like a cowboy.:)

    Gilbert - Ride and shoot like a cowboy - That's too funny! I can't get that out of my head now.

    Joshua tree is great. I forgot that some time back I went on a Redlands Camera Club outing to the Desert Queen Ranch which has all kinds of mixtures of older civilization in the middle of the desert.

    BTW, Joshua Tree in Febr (or whenever the flowers bloom) is stunning.

    I know that these place you list have to have lots of locations. What I'm wondering is can anyone can suggest really specific places? If I have a half day to scout out a place, it would be nice to be able to start at a specific place and then work from there.

    Like around Laguna, is there a place where you can get close to tide pools and get great shots of the animals that would naturally be around there?

    Gilbert: you have favorite places?
