Humboldt Fog

Here on the north coast, a nice sunny summer afternoon can turn to gloomy mist in a matter of minutes. This shot was taken on Woodly Island, looking at the Eureka waterfront, which is shrouded in fog as a late-returning boat slowly cruises into berth.

Fishing trawler cautiously navigates Humboldt Bay's Woodly Island Marina as a heavy fog rolls in on a summer evening.

The shot perfectly captured the tranquil hush that descends on the Eureka waterfront in the foggy evenings here. Sounds and lights become dim and muffled; and visibility can drop to a mere few yards. Any old-time Humboldteer can agree; it wouldn’t be home without it.
