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.
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm at 35mm. 1/200 second at f/11, ISO 200.

While I’m trying to figure out the shift from daily (more or less) commute photos, I’m improvising. Today’s shot is the long shot from yesterday’s Marin Headlands shoot.
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm at 21mm. 1/400 second at f/11, ISO 200.

After a lengthy heat spell here in the SF Bay Area, the summer fog finally began rolling back in–not great for the city people, but for us living away from the bay it means cooler days are coming. As I emerged from the fog while crossing the bridge, I could tell that a jaunt up to the Marin Headlands would make for a good photo stop. And it was. This image of the south tower of the Golden Gate Bridge poking out of the fog was my fave of the 18 shots I took.
For perspective, here’s a wider angle shot of the same scene.

Because it was a very rainy day here in the Bay Area (freakishly unusual for late June), and because I’m rethinking my game, I’m returning to the well for today’s shot.

It’s still HOT in the Bay Area, but the fog is a rollin’ in… Three different focal length views from the same turnout of the low hanging fog rolling in towards the bay this afternoon.
