Hearing the waves break 2000 feet below the fog on the steep western slopes of Mt. Tamalpais, made me feel like I was right on the edge between the continent and the Pacific ocean. The bone-dry grass is extremely slippery during the summer months and it took quite a while to get to this spot. It would be easy to slip and slide down the mountian side about 500 feet.  Despite how much color is in the sky in this photograph, I actually had to de-saturate this image in Photoshop in order to retain detail in the sky.  The reds were just too intense!
