Photographing The Mountains of Southern California
Living in Southern California means living close to the scenic San Bernardino Mountains. As a hobby photographer, it is mesmerizing to capture the mood of a particular day, which is what I try to do with these photo galleries. Simply take a digital camera with you so you can capture pictures that are evocative of the place where you live. People from around the world may never visit your community, but you can share it with them via the web, and even create art through the lense. When I take picture of the beauty here in Southern California, I hope it brings a bit of joy to those who see it. Today there is this pervasive attitude of needing to acquire new material possessions, but I want to get back to enjoying the tranquility of nature via photography. Looking at pictures of nature and beautiful landscapes is a way for me to relax, and simply enjoy life. Taking pictures of the gorgeous landscape around you is always an ideal way to document life in your part of the world for future generations to enjoy.
Map of the San Bernardino Mountains In Southern California
Spending time in the San Bernardino Mountains enables me to go on nature walks, and to take pictures of sights that are close to my heart.
Walking around scenic parts of Southern California will give you many opportunities to take amazing pictures. Also, being outside exploring nature is more fun for exercise than sweating away in the gym.
Taking pictures of the San Bernardino allows you to have a special mountain getaway right here in sunny Southern California. Even though it snows up in the San Bernardino Mountains in the winter, the sun usually comes out right after a snowstorm. It is quite a sight to see.
On the drive down the mountain, I was able to capture many stunning views. I was not driving, by the way, so you should only take pictures if you are a passenger in the car.
The trip up and down Highway 18, also known as the Rim of the World Highway, is one of the most scenic drives here in Southern California.
On the trip down the mountain, you will continue to see spectacular views. Documenting this with a camera allows me to share this part of the world with those who will never be able to see it.
So remember to take a camera with you the next time you are headed to Southern California, or wherever you may live. Nature photography can be a record of memories made in nature.
