A Rare Daylight Shoot at the Beach

When I go to the beach, the camera usually comes out of the bag after sunset when all the beachgoers have gone home for the day. That's because I like to slow the movement of the waves and catch the colorful reflection of the evening sky in the water. But not last week.

The fog changed things: The light, the color, the depth of field. With the fog, you can't see very far, and this allowed me to isolate individual waves without showing any background except as a color wash. The colors may not be as exciting, but it still makes for a moody photograph, don't you think?
