Reader Photo: Zuma Beach colors


Parisian Eric Demarcq says he’s keen on Los Angeles and California. “I love taking pictures of that beautiful state.”

Last month, he had the chance to show his friend Valentina around his favorite California spots during her first visit to the area from Paris. He chose to take a drive on Pacific Coast Highway, “one of the best scenic roads in California,” he said.

They ended up at Zuma Beach in Malibu, where Demarcq spotted a colorful scene: a line of birds flying over the food sign and palm trees.


“As soon as we arrived, Valentina had fully fallen in love with this place,” he said. “She wanted to stay there indefinitely and did not want to leave.”

Demarcq used a Canon 5D Mark III to make the image.
