Where do mornings like this happen? This is beautiful. The model adds a kind of European touch to the photo. Quite Striking.

@Shrigley Photography: This image was taken at sunrise within 1 km of Mad River Slough - near the northern shores of Humboldt Bay in North Coastal California. It is amazing the artistry that can be achieved with a model willing to work in 2 degree (C) weather.

This is absolutely stunning...! The soft foggy background adds to the sensuality of this great concept! In my collection at VFXY!

amazing directional lines with the road leading straight into the mists -- and the sign so strongly pointing to the right!! a visual crossroads of sorts!! the model adds a separate level of complexity and intrigue -- Magritte comes to mind... :)

@dj.tigersprout: Thank you, Jaycee. Tru lives about six hours above San Francisco - but I wrote her yesterday and we're contemplating another shoot. Yeah.

I love the angle of this shot and the mist captured in the horizon. of course, the model posing is very appealing too. awsome!

The misty landscape enhances the beauty of this lovely model. Like the appealing mood you created from this shot, Stephen, excellent work.

Brilliant work, Stephen. You and your model have captured a kind of free-spirit/untamed mood that really fits the scene.
