Big River Beach & Highway 1, Mendocino, California

As a photographer / artist, I'm always looking for fleeting moments of light to create a mood or atmosphere within my landscapes. This particular morning in Mendocino was particularly special as it was completely fogged just prior to sunrise so I didn't expect to see any sunlight. All I needed was a slight opening to create this warm glow across the scene illuminating the beaches below the headlands of Mendocino and the bridge crossing Highway 1.
