I’ve always been a huge of Catalina Island, the 26-mile-from-Los Angeles Riviera that’s great for long walks, back-country exploring and of course, photos, photos and photos.

And I’m thrilled for the people who live there that Apple decided to put the island on the map this year, as the face of macOS Catalina, the new name for the yearly operating system upgrade Apple releases for computers.

This means that every time someone with a new Mac (or updated machine) opens their computer, they’ll see a beautiful photo of the island on their home screen.

This inspired me recently to hop a boat to the island and spend some time Photowalking, in search of the best photo spots. I walked and walked and walked, which is a good thing, got in one great sunrise, a memorable sunset and a quasi sunset that was actually the best of the bunch.

Take a look at the video, to get what I mean by that. And enjoy the gallery below!

FYI: Cruise ships drop passengers off to the island on Mondays and Tuesday, for the mornings and afternoons, so your ideal time to visit would be Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
