People who live in San Francisco and the Bay Area seem to have a love-hate relationship with fog.
If you catch it at the right time as the sun begins to appear, it has the most beautiful misty quality. It cools the city down on hot summer days, and for photographers, it makes for great pictures!
On the other hand, too many San Francisco foggy days cause summers to be miserably cold (winter coat in july?), and gray days almost year round in some parts of the city can be very depressing.
Whether you adore or despise the San Francisco fog, most natives have a special place in their heart for it. It’s lovingly called, “Karl the Fog,” who apparently has his own Twitter feed, Facebook page, Instagram account and LinkedIn profile. I’m not sure who first started this or runs these accounts, but they are pretty funny!
My favorite part of fog is when it starts to dissipate, and the sun gives the fog this soft, warm glow.
The misty cool feel on my face begins to fade as the air quickly changes.
Love the beautiful fog… How about you?
