Foggy Reflections at Cape Alava

Foggy Reflections at Cape Alava

A colored corona, lost for both eyeball and camera in the glare of a fog-diffused sun, appeared as a reflection on calm Pacific waters at low tide.  This was over two years after, 20 degrees F colder, and 2855 miles farther northwest in the opposite corner of the country, compared to my previous photograph of coastal coronal reflections with islands–but no less peaceful and fulfilling.  I had hiked a few miles on a hilly and sometimes slippery trail to reach this beach and tidal flats on the westernmost point of the contiguous USA.  Having had a picnic lunch on the bare rock of a sea stack, then relaxing a little with seals barking in the distance on a different rock, this scene was a rewarding bonus.
