San Diego Bay is a natural harbor and deepwater port located in San Diego County, California near the US-Mexico border. The bay, which is 12 miles (19 km) long and 1 to 3 miles (1.6 to 4.8 km) wide, is the third largest of the three large, protected natural bays on California's entire 840 miles (1,350 km) long coastline after San Francisco Bay and Humboldt Bay. The highly urbanized land adjacent to the bay includes the city of San Diego (eighth largest city in the United States) and four other cities, including National City, Chula Vista, Imperial Beach and Coronado.
Considered to be one of the best natural harbors on the west coast of North America, it was colonized by Spain beginning in 1769. Later it served as base headquarters of major ships of the United States Navy in the Pacific until just before the United States entered World War II, when the newly organized United States Pacific Fleet primary base was transferred to Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. However, San Diego Bay remains as a home port of major assets, including several aircraft carriers, of the United States Pacific Fleet, and as a result of base closures beginning in the 1980s, facilities in San Diego Bay are the only remaining major naval base facilities still in operation in the entire State of California.

Black & white pictures in a backlight environment always create a special mood and this image is a good example. I like the sun's reflection in the water.

You have noticed the subject in brilliance here under the foggy atmosphere. Colorful effect of the sun on this marine making this a dreamy composition.
Have a nice evening,

The fog partly obscures the style of the boats and makes me believe this could be somewhere in Italy. At least this reminds me of some Italian paintings from a few hundred years ago. It's a fascinating view anyway and yoe handled the straight-on light very well.

Dense fog with less than 200m visibility, well collected, Eleu.
Fogy weather during the early morning hours usuaolly indicates a warmer day ahead, but that's known around here in israel's coastal-plains, I do not know how this phenomenon is in the S.california environment.
Fine try, and well applied.
