Sea of Fog

On Monday afternoon Mark and I went out hunting for photos. Berkeley was in its own globe of sunshine. When I looked across the Bay, fog was creeping through the Golden Gate and up the slopes of Mount Tamalpais. Mark suggested the top of Mt Tam would be clear, and it might be interesting to shoot the sunset from above the fog.

We drove up the slopes of Mt Tam through intermittent fog and scattered sunshine. From the ridgeline, the Pacific Ocean was buried in a sea of fog. I exposed using as small an aperture as possible, hoping to exagerate the rays of the sun.
