While most are still in bed lost in a dream state, I was out of bed at 2am and photographing the fog by 5am north of San Francisco. Normally, I love my sleep, but I couldn't resist. The day before, I had been up in the area teaching 1-on-1. On a mid day break, I wandered up into the hills and pinpointed this and a couple other locations. Seeing fog on the webcams when I got home that night ensured my return the next morning.
