The Big Sur Coast in Monochrome

Fog and mist mix with the layers of mountains along Highway 1 and the Big Sur coastline. This mid morning photograph was made after meeting a tourist from Europe at a vista pull out. He was using an old medium format film camera with no light meter and asked to borrow my camera to help him expose his photography. I obliged. He said he was shooting in black and white, so I switched my camera to monochrome mode and followed suit, I drove down the road to another vista point and made this image of the beautiful and rugged Big Sur coast.
