Velvet buck after sunset

I typically preferred to do my photography at sunrise in Point Reyes, but a few times last summer I opted for a sunset trip instead. On this day, I spent a long time hiking in thick fog on Tomales Point during the evening hours. As I drove out of the park around sunset, the skies gradually cleared as I neared the Bear Valley Visitor's Center, and I came across a small herd of mule deer grazing in the tall summer grasses on the hillside.
