Bluefish Cove

Bluefish Cove

I almost missed this. I was done for the day as the fog rolled in more heavily across Point Lobos after noon, and was headed out when I though, “Oh why not check Whaler’s Cove?” And, wouldn’t you know, the fog still stood well off there and the whole bay opened clear. There is a trail up to this vista from the parking lot (where you joggle with the divers for space), and it is always worth a look. As you can see, the fog was just drifting over the point and East Grove, but the water of Bluefish Bay was just as named: intense blue.

Sony DSC H50 at 31mm equivalent. F5.6 @ 1/640th @ ISO 100. Programed auto.

Recovery in Lightroom for the white highlights and to bring up the fog. Blackpoint to the right. Added Clarity and Vibrance in the Presence panel. Sharpen landscape preset.
