DLR 2014, 02: Driving to Anaheim Part 1

Driving to southern California sounds boring. A handful of hours just sitting, looking at places along the way. That's how I used to look at it as a kid. I kind of still think of the drive as that, but now I have a camera at the ready if I see something neat. The thought of Disneyland also clouds the actual duration. It feels like a scenic safari going 75mph+ on Interstate 5. There are some nice views (and smells).

This was the first time taking a trip down south during winter, so I wasn't exactly familiar with the colors. Usually these drives are during summer, so everything looks dead. Something about landscapes "wow" me to no end. I just love seeing the land and the large scale of it. See some of my photos below.

Part 1 of "Driving to Anaheim" is a selection of photographs on I-5 South before the Grapevine. They were all taken with my Fujifilm X-E1 + XF18-55mm. Stay tuned for Part 2 and the VSCO edition.

I was half asleep during the beginning of sunrise, so I wasn't camera ready. Still caught some of it.
First pit stop. It was ridiculously freezing outside.
Such lovely colors. The mountains in the distance are pretty sweet.
Towers always amaze me. The mountains again. So cool.
