Yes, as I mentioned in my intro in the Coffee Corner I've basically been doing documention snapshots of my main hobby until recently. I've shot about 1K photos so far with my new gear trying to do more interesting (for photos) subjects, mainly flowers, birds, insects and the occasional landscape. I'm pretty pleased with some of them and a few prints I've given as gifts were well received.
But the gray fog background makes things look like it does when I've overexposed the sky. I've read some comments where people recovered a lot of blue from an overexposure, but with the fog there's nothing there to recover because it started out gray.
That gulch photo is nice and I'd like to do something like that, but I'm pretty much of a homebody and I try to avoid getting into the Bay Area freeway madness as much as possible (plus everywhere away from the comforting blanket of fog is often much too hot for many months of the year).
The fog is not a problem if I'm focused on a bird in a bush or aiming down at a dahlia. I guess my question may be how can I get the monochrome fog backdrop to work with me in landscapes.
This is not to say I never see the sun, but there is a lot of the year when the fog is in at the beach.
