In the dense fog and gathering night, the turbulent ocean definitely seemed a force to be reckoned with. Alone at the base of a cliff along the Big Sur coast, I felt puny in comparison.
With this 30 second exposure, I attempted to capture the white of the surf against a dark background. The color version shows blue light filtering through the dense, moist cloud of fog and spray.
When I converted the image to black & white, I processed it to emphasize the low-key lighting effect, and to bring out the chiarascuro lighting on the waves, rocks, and distant cliff.
