"Rolling Hills of California - II"
Location: Mt Tamalpais State Park, Marin County, California.

I shot this image just when the sun was peaking through a small gap between the high clouds and the low fog. Hiking on the slopes of undulating rolling hills at Mt. Tamalpais State Park has its perks. Here is an image for those who could not witness the beauty of this amazing place.

Tech Info:
Lens: Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L @ 30mm
Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mk II
Exposure: 1.3sec at f/13 and ISO 50
Filters: All the ND Grads I had with me... the dynamic range was too high to be managed with just one filter.
Post Processing: Added warm tones by adjusting white balance. Added few more software ND Grads filters. Dust removal and saturation adjustments in Adobe Lightroom

San Francisco is a busy metropolitan area but just a few miles to the north exists a place so quiet and unique that it is such a perfect escape from the chaos of the city life. Mt. Tam, as it is locally know, is a perfect vantage point to watch the summer fog rolling into the bay or just enjoy the hike on its undulating hills and redwood forests.
