It was foggy on the Cape

I'm sick in bed (i hate to have a sore throat), so i won't be around much on flickr...

 

Technique/Processing

 

Shot with the 70-300 VR, slightly stopped down. I did underexpose on the camera, but i then realized the fog looked way better as pure white, thus i increased the exposure in Photoshop by about 2,5 stops for the high key effect.

 

Converted to b/w using silver efex.

 

Where

 

I really need a GPS logger... We were driving around Chatham to find a free parking (we didn't want to waste 15$ for the parking at the public beach) and we found this small bay with all the boats. Soooo, shot somewhere in Chatham but i really don't remember the exact location :(

 

P.S.: Turns out, my memory was completely wrong ;) This was taken at Nauset Heights, Orleans

 

Info

 

Cape Cod, often referred to as simply the Cape, and called Cape of Keel by early Norse explorers, is a peninsula in the easternmost portion of the state of Massachusetts, in the Northeastern United States. It is coextensive with Barnstable County. Several smaller islands off Cape Cod, including Monomoy Island, Monomoscoy Island, Popponesset Island, and Seconsett Island, are also in Barnstable County, being part of municipalities with land on the Cape. The Cape's small-town character and large beachfront attract heavy tourism during the summer months.

 

Cape Cod was formed as the terminal moraine of a glacier, resulting in a peninsula in the Atlantic Ocean. In 1914, the Cape Cod Canal was cut through the base or isthmus of the peninsula. It is still identified as a peninsula by geographers, who do not change landform designations based on man-made canal construction.

 

Unofficially, it is one of the biggest barrier islands in the world, shielding much of the Massachusetts coastline from North Atlantic storm waves. This protection helps to erode the Cape shoreline at the expense of cliffs, while protecting towns from Fairhaven to Marshfield.

 

Road vehicles from the mainland cross over the Cape Cod Canal via the Sagamore Bridge and the Bourne Bridge. The two bridges are parallel, with the Bourne Bridge located slightly farther southwest. In addition, the Cape Cod Canal Railroad Bridge carries railway freight as well as tourist passenger services.
