Daydream To These Photos Of California's Endless Summer

Daydream To These Photos Of California's Endless Summer

In Southern California, endless summer is a state of mind that embodies a sense of possibility, exploration, and adventure. For photographer Josh McNair, however, that’s life, as he chronicles every edge of California’s beauty from the Channel Islands to the Mojave and the meandering coast in-between on his website CaliforniaThroughMyLens.com. McNair gave us a peek at his travelogue and in short, it’s the stuff of daydreams. Take a gander yourself, but be warned – these photos will definitely stoke your wanderlust.
