The Blue Hour Before Dawn #2: While driving up the coast highway from Pacific Grove to Palo Alto in the hour before dawn the world takes on blue, almost surreal light. This photo was taken as an approximately 2 min exposure, causing reciprocity failure and accentuating the blue color. The beacon, as it swept the Pacific went through scattered tendrils of fog that were lit during the multiple passes of the beam during this long exposure.
