Summer brings fog to the northern California coast. Sometimes it sits just off the coast and sometimes you can't see anything. I was lucky to get off a few shots today before the fog got too thick and it started to rain. Hope you enjoy my new gallery, "Foggy Coast."

I remember when I was very young, maybe 5 or 6, taking a drive up that direction to visit some cousins. We got up early one morning and I swear the beach looked JUST like that! Beautiful gallery, Virginia...

hi virginia-

thanks for posting these shots, now i have the desire to go visit the coast. in all the years i've lived in the bay, i've never been to hmb :shock: driven past it, but never stopped. same with pacifica, etc. the one place i've always told myself i'd visit is maverick's for the surfing competition, but my timing's never worked out for that.

Ricky, you must plan a trip, but the only way you are going to do this is to decide to do it and plan to stop along the way. You can bring a picnic lunch and make a day of things. There are so many beautiful places to photograph which range from agricultural, the redwoods at Butano, Pigeon Point lighthouse, the wide Pacific with windsurfers and kite fliers, just to name a few. The San Mateo County coast is diverse and fascinating.

It's a little late in the season for Anno Nuevo. That's where the elephant seals "hang out". These pictures were taken south of Half Moon Bay closer to Pescadero. There is also a place called the Coastanoan where you can stop for lunch or even stay overnight.

I'll look forward to seeing your pics.
