The clouds opened up and let the moonlight through to the rocks and sea on a foggy Monterey night. The violent surf was smoothed out by a long exposure, making this place look like another world.   Fog at night creates a lot of atmosphere even though the stars are not visible.  

Because the fog came and went and I was making long exposures, some images were underexposed while others were overexposed.  It really is a matter of luck in situations like this, so I spent a few hours making just a few images, of which only this one turned out well.  Time well spent I believe!.
