I grew up in a small town in the rural Central Valley of California called Kingsburg. It was founded by Swedes over a couple of centuries ago and is called “little Sweden.” It is surrounded by farmland, so after some good rainy days, the area is coated with thick fog.
I had wanted to capture this fog for awhile, but when I checked the weather app on my phone, it never stated it was foggy even though I later learned from my dad that it was, indeed, foggy. I finally messaged my sister-in-law who has kids in the school system and therefore probably received “foggy day schedule” notifications (when school hours start later in the day to allow the fog to dissipate) and asked her if there was a reliant way of finding out what the fog situation was like. She pointed me to a website which finally allowed me to see not only that it was foggy, but also predict if the next morning was going to be foggy. Perfect!
Even with the website saying that it was foggy in Kingsburg on the day I took these photos, I still was a little hesitant when the city a half hour away was completely clear. Luckily, that white sheen was covering the little town when I arrived, and I was able to capture the essence of a foggy morning.
Below is a vlog of my photo adventure and after the video are some of my favorite photos I took of the day.
