Santa Barbara and flowering California coast
• Santa Barbara and flowering Coast California
When I first came to America, he serendipitously chose that time of year when the entire coast of California was at the peak of maximum flowering and green splendor. All the way from Los Angeles to San Francisco, we have done on one of the USA's most scenic routes - Highway number 1.
Instead of the normal driving on the road, we then did hampered by the wayside, and how frantically jumped out of the car, taking pictures all around. Pay attention to the image of a flower called the highway - an eloquent symbol.
The famous Santa Barbara - rich coastal town, lies on the way to San Francisco, not far from Los Angeles. We could not go there not to drive, though they were severely limited in time. Therefore we skimmed through its streets fluently. I like it! The town looks like an old-European. Always hit the saturation of colors in the streets, which had been the most intense in this time of year.
we did not have time to the waterfront and famous arches reach by going on the road. On the way from the windows of cars I liked to shoot Russian unusual sight, but typical for the US elements of culture ...
The next morning, we stunned the sound of ocean waves and fresh ... It was the right decision - not to rush headlong on the scenic highway and stop the night half way.
In addition, quite near us it turned out to be the famous beach with sea lions! A huge number of lions, fur seals lazily lie on the beach. The spectacle of outstanding!
Someone get a tan. Someone is already beginning to climb round, and some sprinkles himself with sand, deftly wielding short legs, fins, to the delight of tourists.
runs smaller animals underfoot.
In April-May, all the roadside covered with thickets of bright orange flower, like a kind of poppy. But in some places, like an explosion of color, across whole fields of flowers! You say, "I do not believe! This is Photoshop! may not be so bright! "Well, take a trip yourself and see who is right.
Look at the purple reflex design on a wooden post - so great brightness of light and color, which gives even reflection on the tree! As if the bottom someone had turned neon lights.
But apart from Flower Fields, landscapes around amazing.
The happy people who live here! I know that these places are chosen for life by many famous writers and artists.
