“Symphony of Fog”
San Francisco Fog Photography & Timelapses
Embarking on a visual journey through the heart of the Bay, we delve into the realm of the captivating mystique of San Francisco fog photography. One of my absolute favorite subjects to shoot.
San Francisco is famous for its foggy climate. The fog in the bay area appears to act independently, occasionally disrupting sunny days and darkening the sky. People have mixed feelings about the fog. Some find it inconvenient and depressing, while others embrace its unpredictable nature.
The fog almost feels like a living creature with a mind of its own.
Regardless of ground-level opinions, the view from above reveals the fog’s stunning beauty. This collection pays homage to this remarkable fog and showcases its magnificent allure. The fog has essentially become a living part of San Francisco’s identity.
I love using a long exposure to simplify the motion of the fog. This perspective shows the fog rolling over the hills into the Bay. In the distance, you can see the Sales Force tower standing above the fog.
This gallery has been a constant project for the last 4-5 years, capturing San Francisco Timelapse sequences and still photos around the Bay Area.
Here are two of my favorite fog timelapse sequences I have ever taken. They were both taken on the top of Mount Tamalpais during a beautiful flow of fog rushing through the Bay Area. The motion as the fog creeps over the hills is breathtaking.
These two images show the magnificent cloud waves that get created when the fog rolls over the Northern California hills.
A figure stands on a distant hill, above a sea of fog. The warm glow from sunset baths the fog with color and filters through the treeline.
Two of my favorite San Francisco photos I have taken in the fog. The first image is titled “Together” and the 2nd titled “Hope”.
Here is a 15-minute timelapse sequence above the fog on top of Mount Tamalpais. It is absolutely amazing to watch the patterns of the flow.
One of the most iconic places to capture foggy flows is around the Golden Gate Bridge. Here is a more intimate look at the fog interacting with the bridge in the night.
The San Francisco fog is incredible from above, but it can be very beautiful inside the foggy flows. I love taking a look at different perspectives of the Golden Gate Bridge.
Another morning capturing Golden Gate Bridge during dawn. This is one of my favorite San Francisco photos. It’s also a still photograph taken from another fog timelapse, which you can watch below.
