For those of us who would like to get in some serious beach time this summer, cameras in tow, a new survey lists the Top Ten US Beaches for Snapping Scenic Photos. Compiled by the photo website takegreatpictures.com, the list ranges from west-coast scenic marvels to east-coast social scenes. But you do have to wonder about some of the choices. First Place goes to Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park in Big Sur, California (left), which strikes us as more of a cragged cliff than a beach. Also on the list is the Main Beach in East Hampton, New York, where special attractions include “Billy Joel, Jerry Seinfeld, and Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs.” Wow. Cutting-edge celebs. Can’t wait to join ’em.
