Does anyone know where it was taken. I could not find it with Google.

    Looks very similar to the roads near Del Perro Pier in GTA V!

    @lightswitchr that is true! Los Santos (GTA V's city) is based on Los Angeles. You can visit most of Santa Monica and Malibu.

Santa Monica California. I googled the name on the bottom left of the image and came across this post. The post says Malibu, but I think Malibu is further up the coast.

For some reason, I can't find the name of the road on google maps, so had to resort to using bing...

enter image description here

Very close to Santa Monica pier.

The view is looking north, overlooking the Pacific Coast Highway, from the bridge that leads to Santa Monica Pier. The bluffs on the right are the edge of famous Palisades Park, and the western terminus of Route 66. The building at far right is on Wilshire Blvd.

Google streetview link.

    I looked it up on google images and chose the largest scale image I can find, which had it in and readable.

    It is the Pacific Coast Highway, you see this view just after you come out of the tunnel from the Santa Monica Freeway. You're correct at this being Santa Monica still.

    @d3vid That's approximately the second time in my life I've used bing. But moomat ahiko way isn't on google maps. Strange. Bing isn't noted for having useful information on it

    It's funny, I instantly new it was near LA because it looks exactly like the road in GTA V you always take to go down the PCH from Los Santos.

This photo was taken in Santa Monica, California, from the bridge leading to the pier, which is named Colorado Avenue.

You can see the same angle from Street View.
