Ocean Mist

Pfeiffer Beach, USA

Pfeiffer Beach is located along the Big Sur coast in California, USA. It's a rugged stretch of coast with big rocks and high cliffs, here the Santa Lucia Mountains rise abruptly from the Pacific Ocean. It stretches from about 190km / 120 mi south of San Francisco to 395km / 245 mi north of Los Angeles, although Big Sur has no specific boundaries.

In Ocean Mist the in summer almost always present fog just outside the Big Sur coast can be seen. This blanket of fog usually moves out of the coast at day time and closes in during the night. The summer fog is essential for the environment as it provides necessary moist during otherwise hot summer days.
