Waves of fog roll over a neighborhood in Mill Valley, California, as seen from the top of Mount Tamalpais.
A sun kissed blanket of fog flows over a hill on Mount Tamalpais in Marin County, California. Getting this shot involved a steep, moonlit hike several hours before daybreak. I used a long shutter speed and a 6-stop neutral density filter to capture the movement of the fog. If you look closely, San Francisco's Sutro Tower is visible on the horizon.
Marine layer fog pushes over the west side of Mount Tamalpais on an August evening.

Although summertime is known to be "fog season" in the San Francisco Bay Area, this image was made in the middle of winter. Tule fog forms inland during the colder, wetter months. Occasionally when conditions align it pushes west, making its way over parts of Mount Tamalpais—mimicking the behavior of the coastal fog commonly associated with the mountain.
It made for this unique composition, as fog that's typically photographed from this point of view is flowing in the opposite direction, interacting with different parts of the landscape.

This picturesque wave of fog was both moonlit and street-lit as it poured over a hill in Mill Valley, California. Making this image involved a steep hike up Mount Tamalpais in the dark, and a long shutter speed to capture the movement of the fog.

Just days after this photo was taken, the road which allows access to the trail was closed indefinitely due to numerous landslides.

Colorful clouds stretch across the sky during a long exposure at the S.S. Point Reyes, an historic fishing boat left stranded (and to be enjoyed by the public) on a sandbar in Inverness, California.
