Sunset above the Fog

Posted by Monterey John (Hollister, CA, United States) on 27 October 2008 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

I went down to Big Sur to try to get some sunset shots at Pfeiffer State Beach. Once again the fog rolled in and ruined my plans. It was time to make lemonade from a lemon. So I went up to the top of the coastal hills and shot some images over the fog.

I've put up a number of these scenes for the next few days.

@Lorraine: Thanks Lorraine, I enjoyed trying something new. I learned getting a sharp focus on fog is an issue as you can see here.
