Dense Fog at Lake Hodges (3 photos)

We’ve had a number of mornings with nice fog in August. It’s quite reliable when the temperatures are slowly on the rise after a number of cooler days, and it seems especially dense then too.

Being in fog here in Southern California usually means that we’re right in the middle of our chilly friend, the marine layer. On this particular morning, it was almost too much – the camera really had a hard time catching onto something with enough contrast to focus on. Developing the photos, I’ve stretched the histogram a lot to add some definition and bring out that gradient from bright to dark in the photos. I hope you like the result!

And clearly, this little series is not as beautiful as my wife’s “Morning Haiku” set from 2012… (but it was much less fog back then;-)
