Capitola in the winter time is a sleepy town known more for its warm sunny days on the Monterey Bay in summer. But winter is the best time for landscape photography on the coast. Brilliant light at sunrise can be a typical scene.
Using a strong neutral density filter to hodl back light enabled me to make a long exposure near mid day to smooth the ocean and show cloud movement near the twon of Davenport, California.
