"Cypress Impression - A Foggy Day In San Francisco"
Location: Presidio Cypress Grove, San Francisco, California.

These fog shrouded Cypress trees have always appealed to me and I remember making an attempt to photograph them a few years ago while I was still shooting film. I also recall how tough it was capture the essense of what it felt like to be here. So I was itching to make another attempt since then. As forecast called for a dense foggy day in the Bay Area I drove here early in the morning and got this image.

I also tried something new here. This is a motion blur image, which I felt added to the mood of the image.
