    This picturesque wave of fog was both moonlit and street-lit as it poured over a hill in Mill Valley, California. Making this image involved a steep hike up Mount Tamalpais in the dark, and a long shutter speed to capture the movement of the fog. It was shot at 4:58 AM on March 15, 2017.

    Image Time: 4:58AM We love that you rose to the challenge of this assignment by photographing in the wee hours of the morning. You have captured a magical moment with the fog creating an ethereal veil, gently blanketing the landscape.
