What a wonderful! At first glance, I thought it was a seascape, with rocks and crashing breakers.
The fog is also a magical force in the San Joaquin Valley in California–I have seen it from above like this, but from down on ground level, it appears to be a living thing spilling over the hills devouring them as it goes. The moodiness is magical. Thanks for sharing this one.

Yes, the uniqueness of the image is in the amount of time one takes to get his/her bearings as to what is it that one is looking at. I think this makes it a successful image.
Being a digital and photoshop junkie :-) I am missing some amount of color saturation and contrast.

Absolutely gorgeous and other worldly. Soft and dreamy. Love it.

This is a great landscape, taken at a time when nature is at its best. No need for photoshop jickery pokery either…….and I dont believe it a NON us based iamge……lol…

wow what a peacefull shot I feel the sense of purity in it it reminds me of my early morning sunrise shots. Great job.

This is a good image, however if you could have stepped a couple of feet further forward (Without falling off) you could have got a little more of the valley rather than the grassy outcrop in the foreground.

absolutely beautiful

A Lovely sight to start a Fall morning!

This is absolutly mind blowing! I couldn’t tell what it was at first and I guess thats what makes it first-class photography!
I hope I’ll be able to get my picture there once too :D
I’ve been working hard! Very hard!

I, too, thought it was a seascape at first glance. The subtle colors here are pleasing to the eye. (Color saturation is fine for some shots, but not all the time.) As for the outcrop in the foreground, I like it there because it adds layers and dimension to the overall picture. Thank you for a beautiful, serene image.

I love this photograph, It’s so peaceful, You’re so lucky to have this view every day.

Wonderful image. I, too, thought it was a seascape. I love subtle suggestions in a photo, and it’s portrays perfectly the soft fog and beyond. Photos don’t have to glare at us to get us to look. I love your counter approach, which makes us want to get closer and really experience it.

Quietly spectacular!
Yes, Katherine, it is quite like the Tulle Fog that blankets the San Joaquin Valley.
