My friend Anne and I shot from up here a couple of years ago hoping for a big, fluffy layer of fog, but we didn’t have any fog that time, so we’ve been planning to return to try again. Finally we both were free, and the Marine layer or fog is returning to the Bay Area. Summer’s can be foggy and cold. So, I got up at 3AM and left the house at 4:45AM and drove an hour north to meet Anne in Marin Headlands.
While we imaging the Blue Period there was a man who sang a wonderful Summer Solstice Sun Greeting song (The song sounded Native American. ) accompanied with a flutist above and behind me. I couldn’t see him, but his voice carried over the ridge; it was lovely and gave me Goosebumps!
Driving down the mountain Anne and I pulled over in one of the turnouts to check out the color and just then the light of the sun hit the North Tower and I pulled out my camera and made this image.
We didn’t get the shot we’ve envisioned becasue the fog wasn’t quite thick enough, but it was a lovely morning spent with Anne, a little fog, color, and a Welcome song to greet and ring in the new season. It doesn’t get much better than that.
