I was flipping through the old photo inventory when I came across this image this morning. It was a bit washed out, so I gave it a little Lightroom action; darkened the exposure, brought up the fill light, increased the contrast and boosted the blacks a bit. All that takes less than a minute. You gotta love Lightroom.
When I was done I realized that I had a good interpretation of what it is like when the fog comes in during the late afternoon... dark, brooding and a bit spooky like a scene from a Hitchcock movie.
I was up on the "Old Coast Road" south of Bixby about three quarters of a mile from the beach perhaps 500' above sea level. The fog was gathering and would soon envelop the beach and then my perch. I love watching the fog gather itself and then totally envelop the coast on what had been a warm and sunny afternoon in Big Sur.
