Today the fog came blasting in from the Pacific Ocean. I walked down to Fort Baker to shoot and found the wind so strong out on the jetty that I seriously thought if it got any worse, I would have to get down on my hands and knees and crawl back to the car. But when I turned and walked sideways, I caught less wind resistance and didn’t feel like I was going to be blown off the jetty and into the bay. This was fierce wind!
Yeah, it was awesome!
I then wanted to shoot a time lapse, but I didn’t have my heavy tripod. My normal tripod, which I had in the car, wouldn’t have stood up at all in this wind. The roiling fog/cloud formations would have made a sensational time lapse.
When I left, the entire area was almost as dark as night in the thick fog cover.
Here are some of today’s shots. (Click any shot to see a larger version of it.)

Unfortunately you mostly just hear the clanking of the boat riggings and not the high pitched whistling of the wind blasting through the sailboat’s masts, ropes, and wires. Still, it worth a few seconds. At least listen until you hear the Golden Gate’s fog horns.
