Kayaking Morro Bay

Went for a paddle on Morro Bay late Monday before driving back to L.A. As the tide went out, the fog refused to lift and the Bay was choppy. 

With the colors pretty bleak, I decided to shoot some monochrome jpegs -- my favorite of which is above. That's my partner Julie paddling toward Morro Rock, obscured by the clouds. It's pleasantly moody. 

The photo was taken with my Nikon Df and the Nikon 50mm 1.8 lens. I only tinkered slightly with it in Lightroom, mostly to bring back a little more detail in the clouds. It's nice shooting jpegs and trying to get things as right as possible in the camera.
