All summer long there was nothing but fog in San Francisco (except for the odd day or two when the fog mercifully retreated out a short distance off shore). Fall arrives and the Bay Area is HOT! Beautifully warm in the city–blazing hot away from the water. This is what it looked like by the Golden Gate Bridge at about 3:30 this afternoon (nice day for sailing!):

Heading south on Hwy 101 there’s an exit just before the north end of the Golden Gate Bridge that goes out to the Marin Headlands. Up the steep hill at the first turnout, this is the view of the northern most section of the bridge and work area below at 4:45 AM (looks kind of sci-fi):

I have very little time during the wee hours commute for camera amenities. Basically it’s park, shoot, and get back on the road. These shots were hand held with the camera set at ISO 800 and f/5.6. Noise happens.

San Francisco fog. Nothing to do but work with it this summer. Today, during the commute home, I pulled off at the first road exit at the north end of the bridge and headed down the hill to Fort Baker. These expanded and contracted views were taken near the Coast Guard dock.

San Francisco has been shrouded in fog for most of the summer. Makes me glad I don’t live in the city. Today’s “run and gun” photos are apropos of what the tourist have been experiencing. I pulled off just before the toll plaza and snapped these:
