21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Gothic Embrace

I live in San Diego County, 45 minutes from Palomar Mountain State Park. In foggy conditions, the park is like a wonderland. There is no place like it in southern California. Northern California, yes, but not here. Every day I check the fire lookout webcams, and when there is heavy fog, I head up there with my camera.
