Barbed Wire Fence ending on a bluff on the central coast of California

Spring weather on the Central Coast is fickle. One moment you are shivering in a cool ocean breeze as the fog rolls in, and the next you can get a sunburn from the warm Spring sun.

This past weekend I experienced the extremes of bundling up, scarf and all, and wishing I had gloves, to a bit of a sunburn on my face and neck and wishing I hadn’t worn a long-sleeve t-shirt (and had put on a bit more sunscreen) and then an hour later shivering again while I ate my lunch on a restaurant patio in the shade.

Today’s photo is another of my daylight long exposure images – this one a mere 10 seconds.

The things I love most about this photo are the colors and the story it tells of the fickle coastal weather – a bit of sun and blue sky along with the fog and the wind. Always brilliant, always unpredictable.

The photo above (10 seconds at f/9, 58mm, ISO 100) was captured with a Induro AKB1 Tripod mounted Canon EOS 7D and Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM Lens with a B+W 10-stop Neutral Density Filter. Processing was done in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4.

Have a wonder-filled day!
