Marine Layer

In "Marine Layer" intentional blur or defocusing allows the viewer to focus on the image holistically, without distraction from crisp detail and features.

In coastal towns, the marine layer is a density of fog that accumulates at the shore when cooler water temperatures and warmer air meet. It can be a subtle haze or a thick fog bank; those images represent the spectrum - those where you can almost make out the detail, and those where only the beach context gives away the subject.
