"It's 108 degrees out here," is what my brother said when I answered the phone. "Ah," I said. "As we speak I'm on my way down the hill into Pacifica to visit the ocean."

"Lucky you," he said.

"It was fogged in at the tower site, so I thought it would be a good time to see what's at the beach" I said. When I arrived, I was still on the Bluetooth narrating the pleasantness to him while I scouted around for three or four shots. "It's a very pleasant 70 degrees, but breezy," I told him.

The water was translucent emerald green, a color I had never observed at Pacifica. Though, to be fair, I only recently began visiting on an semi-regular basis. I'm sure many summer days feature scenes like this. It was also later in the day than I'm prone to go there, so that probably added to the effect.

This is an iPhone shot that has been washed, dried and steam-pressed in #LightroomCC for vibrance, highlight and showdow adjustments, and in #PhotoshopCC with some adjustment layers to get the soft glow effect. It was done in a hurry to attach to an email, so there are obvious flaws to the attentive eye.
