Serendipity in Monochrome

This is a companion piece to my color image 'Serendipity'. The story goes that many factors led me to this beach, completely unprepared for the beautiful light and winter storm clouds which were passing over the Monterey Bay and the Capitola pier before sunrise. The winter surf had exposed old remnants of a pier from years gone by. A long exposure transformed the Pacific into a misty lake as the cloud motion swept across the sky.
