    Does "Avoid the Motel 6 in Grover Beach" help?
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    Oceano Dunes is a great location.
    "..approx. where to go?"
    is the hard part of your question. If you're looking for EW's tripod holes I can't help. Remember they are sand dunes and constantly shifting. I think studying the sun and shadows will get you closer to EW's vision unlike Ansel's Half Dome and Glacier Point which, from what I've heard haven't moved all that much since he was running the Best's Studio.

    There is a place that is a short distance south of the drive-on point that is off limits to the dune buggies. Problem is, it is next to the horse corals and can have horse tracks. Less likely some cold morning this time of year. I haven't been in years, so my experience may not be up to date. Also, there was a time when you could park at the stables, but that is long gone. Just park in Oceano and walk. Or park on the beach if your car can drive on sand and in salt spray.
