Day 44 – Misty Night

It’s hard to imagine that we are still in the throws of an El Nino season.  We started out with above average snow fall prior to the new year, yet we now find ourselves with 80 degree plus weather in Jan/Feb here in Santa Monica!  Tonight, the mist and fog started rolling in.  I love the moodiness created by mist and the way is disperses and softens light. It’s times this where I wished I lived in the mountains, or a forest, as I love the look of sun peering through the misty trees.  But I digress, I live by the beach!  That certainly isn’t too shabby. 🙂  Tonight I tried capturing that light and I must confess, I was somewhat challenged.  We have these old gas lamp looking light posts on our street that have a beautiful warm glow.  I put tripod under one of these trees, focused the camera straight up, and tried to capture the illuminated water vapors in the sky.  The image above is what I finally came up with.  Hope you enjoy!
