Fogscape in Point Reyes National Seashore

Photograph of a foggy morning in the estuary at Point Reyes National Seashore

Thick early morning fog shrouds the sandstone bluffs around Limantour Spit and the entrance to Drake's Estero in Point Reyes National Seashore. I do enjoy the fog since it gives that nice diffuse light all morning long, but I don't know that I can remember the last time it was sunny for a sunrise in the Bay Area.


  1. A sunny sunrise is definitely a pain to get. Even hear in the northeast I find it rare. Usually it has 1hr or 2 to burn off haze and clouds and by then the light is junk or people are everywhere. So lame, but you definitely made use of the alternative; excuse me; I mean common weather there ;-)

  2. Thanks, Jarred. This has definitely been the common weather here -- even more so this summer that usual due to some odd weather patterns. of course, since I posted this last week the weather forecast has changed to call for some clear mornings this coming week (which won't do me any good during the work week, but maybe it'll hang around until the weekend). I'm not going to complain though -- the fog just means that you can get there a bit later than sunrise and stay out with even lighting longer!
