Monterey Peninsula: A Cypress Shore Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Monterey Peninsula of California is a place that inspires you to revel in secret places, hidden enclaves, and misty coastlines-if only from your armchair. It is truly an enchanted landscape-one that has worked its magic on a loyal population of devotees to this remarkably charming and whimsical place. MONTEREY PENINSULA captures the romance of this lovely region of fairy-tale-like places, vibrant communities, and woodland retreats at the edge of the ocean. Wander with photographer Gary Geiger and author Thom Akeman through Monterey, Pacific Grove, Pebble Beach, Carmel and Carmel Valley, Point Lobos, and Big Sur. Play golf at Cypress Point, taste wine at Chateau Juliu, watch sea lions, whales, otters, pelicans, and deer, and fly high above the spectacular coastline to trace the line where the surf meets the cypress shore. AUTHOR BIO: Photographer Gary Geiger has lived in Carmel since 1974, where he photographs everything from landscapes to portraits. MONTEREY PENINSULA is his second book with Graphic Arts Center Publishing(r). Author Thom Akeman is a veteran journalist who calls Monterey his home. He has been on the staffs of six daily newspapers across the country. MONTEREY PENINSULA is his third book.
