fog rolling in

That's fog rolling into the Golden Gate...

Fog marches where it wants to and there is no stopping it...   It can be cold and miserable, but it also serves as wonderful natural air-conditioning during hot weather.

That's the Sutro Tower sticking out of the fog -- it's a tall support for antennas.

The Golden Gate Bridge, if you could see it, would be on the left side of the photo.

The photo was taken from the West Peak of Mt. Tamalpais at an elevation of about 2,000 feet.

Awesome! I never thought one could love fog until I moved to Marin County, actually. At one poiont, I lived in a a little apartment under the roof, with South exposure, and on these really hot days when the temperature exceeded 100 degrees, I would jump in my car and drive down towards the City. The minute you pass Mill Valley things cool down considerably, but by the time you reach Marin Headlands, you practically need a sweater! And the way that fog wraps around some of the Bridge but not all, you could watch it for hours, really. Great shot.

A beautiful fog shot. Fog by the very nature of it seems to transform pictures and enhance them. We have a foggy morning here today and I'm just waiting for adequate light to get a few shots!

Love your "above the fog" shots. They remind me of those computer animations of what it would be like to descent to the surface of Venus or something. Beautiful and mysterious!

I lived in the heights of Sausalito for a couple months and what I remember most is that fog roilling down the hill next to the house ! your photo reminds me a lot of that time !

I don't think I would ever mind fog if I were above it like you are in many of the photos you post.

Love the layers and the tower peeking out of the fog. Great shot as usual.
