This particular view, on this particular morning... this was the moment when I decided I was moving to Marin. I just stared into the layers of fog, hills, houses, and skylines, and I said, "nope, I'm not leaving."

Well, I DID have to drive back to San Jose that night... but just three months later, that dream became reality, and now we live in this stunning county!

This view was inspired by a nearby webcam, which we've used for many years for monitoring fog at the Golden Gate Bridge. It's ideally positioned, because when the fog at the bridge is perfect, it usually doesn't reach this location, so the camera maintains a clear view. But none of us actually PHOTOGRAPHED from here -- we simply used it to scout the conditions elsewhere.

Several years ago, while checking fog conditions at the bridge, I started to wonder if an image like this would be possible. It doesn't normally flow like this -- it comes in through the gate, and leaves this area clear. After studying the patterns and checking on every morning that had a chance, I decided after a few years that it probably just wasn't possible.

Well, fast forward almost 5 years, and one morning at 5am... I saw something promising. It seemed to have a chance. What did I have to lose, besides a little sleep?

Well, it happened. And I haven't seen it repeat since. There were many incredible, special, and unique moments this morning... but this one, oh my. The kiss of magical light, awakening the whole county. It is the photo I chose to hang in my own living room, and many Marin families have chosen it too.

This is the cover photo of my Awaken series, which showcases the beauty of little-known areas, with the goal of inspiring locals to explore and love our backyard. As of the time of publishing, there is no other image like this in existence. There will undoubtedly be attempts to duplicate it, but few will succeed with the conditions and method required for a large print. As with most images in the Awaken series, serious buyers may choose to have the location revealed to them. I hope you enjoy it!

VAST Print™

A VAST Print™ represents the pinnacle of the photographic medium. Each print is a true photograph created specifically for you using light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom with the industry's highest precision exposure technique. Your print is then sealed with a shine-enhancing protective glossy coating*, adhered to a sturdy aluminum composite backing, and finished in one of two ready-to-hang formats:

  • Frameless floating display: A hidden mounting brace on the rear gracefully "floats" the print off the wall for a sleek, modern look.
  • Framed display: The print is mounted inside one of our handcrafted 100% wood frames with a decorative separation between the print and the frame so that the print appears to be floating within the frame, providing depth and elegance to the finished photo.

*Note: a non-glossy, satin matte coating is alternatively available on request.
