The view across Mendocino Bay of the village of Mendocino is beautiful and ever changing. I live just south of the bay, so I drive past it nearly every day, and have photographed it many, many times. There are various places along Brewery Gulch Road (turn west off hwy. 1, just across from the Comptche-Ukiah Road) from which to shoot. You can snap a shot without getting out of your car from one of the pullouts along the road, but a very short walk out to the land trust property near the north east end of the road will reward you with gorgeous views of the whole bay.
