Low storm clouds and fog in the hills seemed like a great combination as I headed home from work. After driving around for 15 minutes just under the fog line scanning the shrouded oaks, still nothing.

With night clearly taken hold and the blue hour (well, mostly grey) fading, I pulled off the road to the entrance of a ranch and set up for a long exposure shot of these oaks I see everyday. Though not the best of conditions and only mildly interesting when viewed on the screen, the fallback is to create a moody image in SEP2.
This photograph continues my recent trend of “efficient” photography. Set up for the shot, take 1 snap, pack up and go.
