Attempted Photos of Grey Whale Cove

14:54 Tue 04 Aug 2009

Grey Whale Cove is a spot slightly north of Montara Beach, one of my favorite places to drive. Two Sundays ago I decided to get some shots of the area around Grey Whale Cove. Unfortunately, I’m a terrible photographer.

It was very foggy, and I thought some views of the coast in the fog would work well. However, I wasn’t watching the exposure, and everything was completely washed out. For example, you’d be forgiven for thinking that this was taken in the Antarctic:

It’s not. That’s not snow, that’s water. Water that’s been photographically rather overexposed, and the view is of the southern end of the cove.

This is a slightly more reasonable shot of the view looking north:

To the north, there was a great view of a building on a cliff emerging from the fog. Again, the exposure was all wrong, and instead of that view I got this:
