In The Light Most of us love a beautiful sunny day at the beach. Over time however, I’ve also developed a tremendous appreciation for the variety of moods along our fog wrapped coast.

The foreground tree trunk and limbs frame the center of interest and helps put you on the edge overlooking the mystery yet to be revealed below.
