Going back a few days, here’s another shot I took at Fort Baker in Marin County, CA. Most of the structures on the site are white with red roofs. The fog is ever present during summer afternoons.

No, it’s not a small installation by Christo, but plastic wrapped food for livestock ;^). Wrapped silage is not a usual sight here in the county, but because of the unusually wet weather we had in late June it kind of makes sense. I grabbed the scene during my mind mellowing drive through the hills a few days back. It was nice of the farmer to arrange the bales in such an aesthetically pleasing way.

The Bay Area was clear and warm most everywhere this afternoon except at the mouth of the Golden Gate. Because of the thick, low hanging fog, I figured there would be some moody shots to be had. First I drove through the Presidio on the south side of the bridge, but came up short because the fog was already pushing hard up the cliffs. On the north side the Fort Baker views were much better. The fog was curling nicely around the tower so for this shot I metered in favor of the sky.

While enjoying a beautiful Sunday at the homestead, I grabbed my G11 and took some close-ups of one of our watering pots. I had a different idea when I started, but, as usual, it took a turn.

Here’s an intimate scene of a typical summer afternoon out in the hills of southwestern Sonoma County, California. The fog veiling the higher hills is a regular presence.
