Early mornings at Monterey Bay often involve a layer of fog. On this particular morning, I awoke in my east-facing hotel room to a beautiful golden light coming in the window. I grabbed my camera and ran out on the balcony. Below the sun and the layer of fog, I could see faint details of the shoreline. I watched the light change as the sun rose through the varying density of the fog. Eventually a fishing boat cruised by, making a perfect point of interest in the scene. Making this photo reminded me of the importance of stopping to watch a beautiful scene transition over time.
