Fog is wonderful, when it is not ruining your shots. While not the best year for fog, still many opportunities for those who chase. Below are my efforts:

1) Golden Frisco

2) Two Islands

3) Simmering Panther

4) Pink Lemonade

5) Blue Diablo

6) Cement Oasis

7) Island Fantasy

8) Lighted Journey

9) Golden Dawn

10) Cotton Candy Galore

11) Cloud Stew

12) Pink Smog

13) Journey through Dreams

    Great collection, Taz. There must be a gazillion shots of SF peeking through the fog, but I never get tired of them. The light in the first one was especially nice. Well done.

    As usual, your shots amaze. The Cement Oasis, with Sutro tower rising out of the soup, is my favorite.

    BUT - as Herb Caen and I as a 3rd generation San Franciscan say - don't call if Frisco!!!

    Thanks Ziggy, Richard, Denise and Jo!

    Sorry Jo, was only trying to be cool.....no more Frisco!

    I'm not that much fan of landscape photography, but these shots are truly awesome.

    I do like the combination of nature and man-made assets which is present on most of the pictures, this is what really makes the pictures outstanding for me. If I had to pick a favourite, it'd be numer 6 - the Cement Oasis. It has a slightly dystopian or futuristic touch to it, works very well for me.

    Thank you for sharing!

    Very cool! And I'm envious. Fog isn't something we see very much.

    Rough year, but doing well. Been trying to be retired, but still working part time. Solution? Sell company in 2018. More time for wanderings and photos!

    Great work, Taz! My fav is Lighted Journey, but I really like Simmering Panther and Cement Oasis too.

    San Franciscans were sensitive about the use of Frisco 50 years ago, so some things never change.....
