When The Fog Lifts

When The Fog Lifts

This is a photo I almost didn’t take. The entire day the San Diego coast was covered in a soupy fog. The kind of fog where the bits of moisture floating around are clearly visible. The kind of fog when you stand in it for a few minutes, your clothes feel a little damp and your skin wet. Everything about the day was telling me not to go to the ocean with my camera.

I went anyway. And I’m glad I did.

I planned to take the fog as a challenge and go for a minimalistic photo. And then the fog started burning off - fast. With about a half hour to go before sunset, the only fog was well off shore. The photo here is one of the last I took that day.

Watch for an In The Field video of this shoot later this month!
