Dang! These are really nice, Greg. I love those sail-boarding shots, but they are all excellent.

Greg-

Summer is the time of year for the fog. Some folks are disappointed as they were expecting bright sunshine, but that is just the seasonal weather pattern.

Hi, Sarah.

I loved it. The fog makes/made for some fun image making. Totally different from what I am accustomed to. The second day we went to the Muir Woods, I was hoping the fog would stay in for a while, but by the time we made our way down Mt. Tamalpais it had lifted, leaving me sunny skies and deep shadows to deal with.

Greg .. wow.. those are a cracking set.. but No.5 and 6 really stand out. The composition is just spot on for those two and I would love to have those printed up nice and big and then framed !

Being from the Bay Area, those are all familiar (and well captured) scenes. The typical N. CA beach...no one in the water so cold it is (specially with the lingering fog). Hope you made it to the Light House further North from Stinson Beach off Hwy 1 pass Inverness. It's another beautiful place to visit. The Light House sits at the bottom of a cliff, 350 steps down. Also near Inverness there is an Indian village with a museum and next to it a path that leads to where the epicenter of the great 1906 Earthquake was. Very interesting stuff.

Hi Tullio. We did make it to Point Reyes. What a remote place! I never thought the drive would end. By the time you get there, it's like you are at the end of the world. Katherine started laughing at me, saying we were never going to get there after an extended amount of time on that winding road.

Unfortunately, the day we went was one of two days during the week when the lighthouse is closed, so we did not venture down there, but the views from the cliffs were very impressive, even with the light fog that had rolled in.

Yes, it is a very long and winding road to get there but it's a nice drive going through farms and fields. Too bad the Light House was closed (not that there is much to see in it!). The thing with Point Reyes is that when the fog is in, it gets very windy and chilly.
