The wind bent the trees and grasses as the fog rolled quickly over the lower hills at Mt Tamalpais on a late spring evening.  Most of the time when there is low ocean fog, the skies are clear, so seeing higher clouds in the sky is a rare event.  I used a 1/2-second exposure to show a little motion in the fog and the foreground grasses.  I like including motion whenever possible even if it is extra work.  I had to shelter the camera and tripod with my body in order to avoid camera shake.
