Islands in the Sky

96 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Marin County, California

The San Francisco Bay Area is known for fog in the summer months. May Grey becomes June Gloom, followed soon by Fogust. Fog and San Francisco are inseparable. So much so, that folks around the world will often tell you Mark Twain once said, "The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco."

Unfortunately, Twain didn't actually say that -- it's a myth. Now you know! But summers in San Francisco are still chilly, windy, and foggy!

On a July 4 many years ago, I learned that not only did the San Francisco fog look beautiful from above, but there were certain ridges that it flowed over, creating fantastic wave-like patterns. I was photographing with my friend Nick, and this began our neverending hunt for fog waves. Fog is such a fascinating subject to photograph, because even in the same location with similar conditions -- it always looks a little different. On some days, trees will poke out above the fog. On other days, buildings, skylines, bridges.

Of all the places I have photographed the fog, this spot tends to produce some of the most amazing scenes. However, it is very sensitive to the exact conditions -- if the fog is the tiniest bit too low, it won't flow over the hills, and if it's the tiniest bit too high, you're standing in the fog and there's no view at all. Thankfully, I'm a meteorologist and am able to forecast the fog height and coverage, which greatly increases my chance of success. But even then, there is no guarantee. You just have to go.

This was one of those "perfect" days, even with a few clouds above. Quite rare to see the fog-and-high-cloud combination in summer around here! I took a couple VAST photos at different times that evening, and this moment with the colorful sky on top of the flowing fog just might have been the most spectacular.

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.
