Moonride

343 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Mt. Tamalpais, 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 Steinberg, 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.

This is a beautiful location to hunt fog, but it is very sensitive to the exact conditions, which can quickly change. 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, the trees and skyline in this VAST photo would not be visible. 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.

On this evening, this actually wasn't my original plan: I was hoping to be somewhere down below, lining up the full moon over the San Francisco skyline. However, the fog had other plans, and most photographers stayed home that night. But when one door closes, another door opens. This is what was behind that door!

Print only

Our photographic prints are created using a specialty, large-format fine art printer designed to produce archival, museum-grade prints. They are true "chromogenic" prints: light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom using state-of-the-art lasers to produce the sharpest possible image. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.

Our photographic prints are available in one of two finishes: glossy and lustre. Glossy prints have a rich, silky saturation and are great for environments where the lighting and reflections have been carefully thought through. Lustre prints have a bright, sparkle-like finish that diffuses reflections and are therefore more versatile for environments where the lighting and reflections are less under your control.

Your print comes with two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one that you will affix to the finished piece and one that remains standalone. Additionally, your print's provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital technology. Learn more.
