Road Trip Baja California Photography

by | Baja California

Mexico Surf Adventure

We continued along Baja California from a tiny fisher village to the next one. Since most of the landscape is desert, there is not much variety in the photos I could take. So I focused with my camera on the minor differences.

Each location has something unique for the eager photographer looking for some shots. Sometimes it is a giant whale skeleton or the neighbors camping next to us waking up to a new dawn. If nothing extraordinary happens, you need to wait for sundown. Sundown photos are always impressive, along with the Baja California coast.

Of course, surfing was a big topic along our road trip to the peninsula’s south. There are literary hundreds of beautiful surf spots down the Baja. Most are in very remote places, which demand a proper off-road vehicle. You better have “The Surfer’s Guide to Baja.”

About the Author

Hi, my name is Christian Köhlert, and I am a photographer and digital content creator living most of the time in Montreux, Switzerland. Since I came to Baja California, in 2016, the Mexican peninsula has become my second home. Especially, San Pedrito Beach, close to Todos Santos, has been my front yard during the cold winter months in Europe. At this beach, I learned surfing, so I came every year to enjoy the waves. I have many more in my Travel Photography Blog if you like my photos.
