Happy Sky Watch Friday everybody !

In the San Francisco Bay Area we get more than our share of fog, but usually nobody complains -- it serves as our natural conditioning during the hot summer months...   It can be quite beautiful too...   The fog you see here was spilling over a shoulder of our beloved Mt. Tamalpais last Tuesday.   As you can see, it was quite an impressive sight...

That is pretty. It is such a strange feeling when one is surrounded by mist.

How fog can look so menacing, I don't know. Makes me think of 'The Fog'.

Looks like a thunderstorm is brewing up there.

Marvin said...

That looks like a Stephen King kind of fog. There's no telling what might be inside.

Gemma Wiseman said...

This fog almost looks like a waterfall of cloud! Great pic!

Becky said...

WOW, that fog looks really dense! We have fog here too, but I can't imagine it so heavy. Happy SWF.

Fog and mist is always a favourite of mine. Such surreal images.

A side of fog I don't often see - usually I'm inside, looking out.

That is beautiful! I love to see the rolling mist.

Gorgeous. I lived in the Sunset District of San Francisco for a few years, and it was always amazing to me to watch the fog creep up from the ocean and then eventually flow past our window.

Happy skywatching~

I can feel that and smell it too. It does look refreshing as the thermometer says 90 degrees right now.
Great capture.

juliana said...

it does look impressive... great shot.

Tomate Farcie said...

I love the San Francisco fog!!! We're so lucky to have it!
Wish I could bottle it up and send a little to people who live in areas like Sacramento, where it gets really hot in the Summer. Great shot, great colors!

Jeanne said...

It's amazing to me that even just in the US there's so many different scenic images. You wouldn't see a sight like this on the east coast. Great capture. Love your header. The water looks almost milky.

Great Sky Watch-photo.It can`t always be sunny!

Jules said...

Wow - it looks like fairy floss (candy cotton). I lived in the mountains for many years in Australia and we would often wake up to this. The mould loved it!!!

Like your sense of humour and photos!!!

Fog & mist is so atmospheric when it clothes the mountains & hills I think, & I love it when you start to see the sun begin to shine through.

Rebecca (Ramblings by Reba) said...

Holy cow! That's amazing!

Anna said...

Really impressive! It must be so dramatic to watch the fog rolling over like that!

It looks so DARK underneath! Last night I watched the movie 'Mist' and can imagine aliens thriving in that cloud :O

chrome3d said...

It´s so abstract and it´s hard to tell what size it is. It looks really great!

Pat - Arkansas said...

Beautiful; and it looks cool... which we could use some here. Nice Sky Watch!

AphotoAday said...

That is what I like in the SF area and down the coast to San Luis Obispo - fog and clouds. Nice conditions for SKW photos.
Promised to publish one sailboats and sky next friday, so it will take one more week for a california SKW photo.
Waiting for your comment for that one.
