The Doors “Waiting For The Sun” album cover was taken in 1968 by photography Paul Ferrara 1968 Los Angeles, California.
I tried to dig a little deeper and find the exact location in Los Angeles where this photo was taken and it seems as it was taken on a cliff off of Laurel Canyon Blvd. Here’s a great picture of Ferrara on top a car during the photo shoot.
Here are some outtakes from the photo shoot…
I live on Laurel Canyon near where Jim Morrison himself lived so I will try to track down the exact cliff. I’ll keep those interested posted.
