Calm and Quiet

Fisherman's Wharf Harbor - Monterey Bay - California

This image was taken one week after Tuesday's full moon image. Here was a night under overcast skies. Such a contrast. There were very few people moving about. So peaceful.

Canon 5D w/ Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 lens: ISO 400 - at 20mm - f/2.8 - 0.8 seconds

Personal note: I've been traveling down in the Monterey area this week - on assignment with a very busy schedule - please understand and pardon my sporadic participation here these past few days. If all goes well - back home tomorrow...

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! I really like the tall lamps that frame the picture on the left and right. Such an interesting picture that I can look at for quite some time. This one is a real winner.
