Having grown up in the foggy little coastal town of Pacific Grove I am no stranger to fog, so when I moved to Marin County 42 years ago I felt right at home in the cool semi-liquid atmosphere.

I shot these foggy photos at Roy's Redwoods -- not an easy place to find, but a gem of public open-space here in Marin County.

We don't get much fog here but I do remember it when I grew up in Southern California. Love the mood these photos create!

Diamonds hanging from the weed stems and semi-liquid air makes the most wonderful pictures.
Pure artistry Don.

Mystical! You're bringing me back to my childhood - I sure loved foggy days, would pretend I was an angel running around in heaven.
