4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Photo Op Guide for the Big Sur August 16, 2011
Verified Purchase
The first reviewer should do a little more research and less critiquing. If he had bothered to search he would have found that on this very website there is a free "Kindle for PC" reader that would allow him to see the fine images of this ebook. I found that it is available for IPhone, IPad, and Nook as well.It is excellent for its intended purpose which is to share the authors secret spots for some beautiful scenery on the Big Sur Coast. I love that he included GPS coordinates. Many of these places can be missed by the first time visitor so I do appreciate that there are photographers that are willing to share their favorite places. Good work Don.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Guide to the Big Sur Coast August 16, 2011
I have personally used this book to locate some of the most beautiful sections of coastline in the world! Don's book is well written and makes a great companion while shooting, or planning to shoot, along this stretch of coast. The images give you an exciting view and vision of many iconic locations available for photographers along Big Sur. Dons creative vision and his writing style are easy to follow and his thirty years of experience as a professional photographer give him the ability to share special tips and information with his audience.

For those using the Kindle Reader there is a free download for both the PC and Mac and this will allow the book to display in full color.

Thanks Don for the great Ebook!

This is a great guide to find those hidden and not so hidden spots to photograph. A good resource for those not familiar with Big Sur.
