Fading Light over Pacific Ocean, by Matt Tilghman
Fading Light over Pacific Ocean
 Loading image...
From Russian Ridge, high above the Pacific Ocean in California's Santa Cruz Mountains, the dense fog becomes part of the landscape, and the sky looks once again cloudless.
Russian Ridge Open Space
The coastal fog of Northern California brings moisture to the flora on the western slopes of the Santa Cruz Mountains, making the landscape less dry than the precipitation totals would suggest. From high above the fog in Russian Ridge (which isn't always above the fog), it seems to me that the thick blanket is more a part of the land and sea than the sky. While the humidity of the fog can be choking when you're in it, the view from up here shows clearly that the moisture barely reaches above the ground. The sky beyond is as vacant as can be, free to transition undisturbed into twilight.
