Corolla Dock Perspective

Uploaded: April 13, 2007

Description

f11.0, ISO 200, 1/350, 58 mm Circular Polarizer, 58 mm Graduated 2-stop ND Filter, Sunset, The Corolla Light Inn, Corolla, NC. I took this from the top of the dock that lead out of our hotel room to overlook the bay. This weird creepy fog was rolling in & it looked like something out of a movie. There was fog on the water & above it but the sun was setting just between the clouds in this really thin line.
