The fog makes everything so mysterious, changes the colors. The air is cool and moist here at the coast the last few days. It's still bloody hot inland. Here's a different view of the famous Lone Cypress, which these days is mostly cement and reinforcing wires. It is fenced off to keep the hordes of tourists from loving it completely to death and chewing off little chunks to take home with them. Hardly recognizable, is it? It's the back side, not at all photogenic.
I still think the fog improves almost everything, sort of like soft focus in the movies (which in the old days I guess they achieved by smearing the lens with vaseline).
