A cold & foggy sunset taken at Torrey Pines State Beach back in August of last year. The haze/fog was so thick that it covered the bottom portion of the sun, had I waited a few minutes longer for the sun to set then the disc would’ve completely disappeared!
This long exposure was taken at Torrey Pines State Reserve overlooking Torrey Pines Rd. I took this shot just past sunset, which is one of the few times that you can have the streaking effect with a well lit scene without the use of any ND (Neutral Density) filters. The long shutter speed allows enough ambient light to register on the sensor to produce a normally lit scene while all the moving objects (cars) create the streaking effect.
Even though I wasn’t really going for it, I really like how the Marine layer effect was captured. If you look at the cliffs on the right, that haze is a Marine layer, which is caused by warm air hitting the cool ocean surface. Marine Layers are much closer to sea level (only a few feet high), in person they are a lot easier to tell from a cloud.
