Trees & Fog

Another picture from my excursion into a damp and foggy world (a rarity of late here in SoCal where temperatures have been heinously high).  This time, a panorama of about 9 images, cropped and edited a bit.  I used the Df and 24-85 lens.

That morning, the fog was very thick, and even around 9:30 a.m. when I took this, the fog was dense.  Only later did the sun break through.  It was rather eerie to wander alone . . . just a few days from Halloween!

Early Morning

Another photo from the misty, moisty morning I climbed out of bed . . . .  While the Galaxy S5 takes OK panos, I like the stitching-together process better.  Here is a view of Mount Clef across the grasses of the small valley in Wildwood Park nearby my home.  Today we expect 86F, and tomorrow 91F.  I think I live in hell sometimes, even though it is very pretty!  I am tired of this heat – ongoing heat – and dream of water falling from the sky.

A View from Second Beach

A View from Second Beach

The beaches along the Olympic Peninsula are nothing short of amazing. No camera can catch the mood perfectly, but software can help!

While we were there, the sky moved from a foggy opacity, to blue and cloudy, and back. I wanted to capture that in-between time when the sun was breaking through as the fog lightened.

In the Misty Coastal Range

In the Misty Coastal Range

Along the central California coast, the marine layer can extend inland. There are days when the skies are grey, and “sunny California” exists as a memory. Inland, the layer breaks up, but along the coast and tucked into the edges of the mountains, it can be depressingly dull. As a result, “May Grey” and “June Gloom” are my least favorite times to be on the coast, and am very glad I moved one valley inland!
