Foggy Santa Cruz Wharf


Here in the very hot and sunny Arizona desert, I've developed a GREAT appreciation for rain. The temperature drops 20 degrees. In Santa Cruz, CA I developed an appreciation for fog.

This photo is a departure for me. I normally prefer very bright colorful art. But I've always wanted to do something with this one. Fog has a subtle appeal. It's like stepping into a dream world, very quiet and serene.

Lots of foggy days this 'summer' in Santa Cruz -- yesterday limited to about 3 hours of blue-sky sunlight between the morning and evening fog banks. Temps in 60-70 range!

hugs,
John

Hi John! It's been raining a lot here. Last night we heard what must have been hundreds of frogs! It's hard to believe there are frogs in the desert -- they don't appear until there's been enough rain. We saw a couple last year but we didn't get enough rain to hear a chorus before.
