12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Drifting Above

The fog in Big Sur has a dynamic all its own completely socking in the coast. Yet the highlands rise above the seemingly breathing secondary ocean of clouds to unveil a star filled galactic sky. This image is a vertical panoramic, 4 separate horizontal captures were used. The shadow on the fog comes from the rising moon behind me as it climbs above the mountains.
