Fog and smoke mingle on Mt. Tamalpais.
I’ve been struggling to remain positive in the face of the “new West,” one in which 200,000+ acre wildfires can no longer be considered catastrophic because they occur with annual regularity; in which smoke is the new salient atmospheric feature of summer; in which respirators are recommended for outdoor activities. This is the new West that we have created through our unintentional and negligent manipulation of Earth’s atmosphere, and I fear it will only get worse in my lifetime. But... the sunsets sure are amazing.

Some days are stressful, some days are fun. In the end, all days make me work for what I want - just like this basic shot 😊
I haven’t been able to find any amazing vista points recently - Mt. Tam still remains one of my favorites. Every time I’m there it feels like I’m on top of the world...
This entire summer, I’ve been waiting for a low fog moment. Finally got a nice shot this past week. Who knew fog chasing was a patient sport. Super awesome shout out to the photographers I met on the mountain too!
Last night’s stunning display of nature. This is what it looks like from above when the fog rolls over San Francisco. The little tower you see popping out is the Salesforce Tower, now the tallest building in San Francisco.
I want to dedicate this one to a dear friend of mine who starts a new chapter of life today. Working with her for seven years at the SF tourism bureau taught me lots of things, but most of all inspired me to become a better person. Here’s to you @intcwhu100

Trying to do landscape closeups definitely takes me out of my comfort zone. This was from last week up on Tam
Here’s a short time lapse I took of the last fog event we had a few days ago. There’s really nothing like experiencing it in person. It’s the closest thing that I imagine heaven to be like.
On another note, how about that France World Cup win today? So proud of my peeps! 🇫🇷 L R .

I want to thank everyone so much for the nice comments on my previous posts about my SFO project.
Feeling inspired, I went up to Mt Tamalpais yesterday, in an attempt to try to capture some of the fog movement that results when just the right amount of fog and wind come together over the peaks of the trees in that area. When I arrived, I was rewarded with the stunning view that you see here. * Check out my Stories for a time lapse of this moment
