Coming back from my piano lesson (which is on Monday evenings after work), I almost always stop for this left turn at the intersection of the Pacific Coast Highway and Carmel Valley Road. From the light, you look down on Torrey Pines State Beach, the cliffs of Torrey Pines State Park (on the left), and the point that forms La Jolla (on the right).
Unfortunately, I only had a couple of seconds (because the light turned green!), and the camera autofocused on my hand and not the vista. D'oh!
