Adrift from Simon Christen on Vimeo.
Excerpt below from Simon Christen's Vimeo post. I changed the pronouns to third person.
It has been almost 3 years since Simon Christen released "The Unseen Sea" and he's excited and proud to share with you his latest project "Adrift".
"Adrift" is a love letter to the fog of the San Francisco Bay Area. Simon chased it for over two years to capture the magical interaction between the soft mist, the ridges of the California coast and the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. This is where “Adrift” was born.
The weather conditions have to be just right for the fog to glide over the hills and under the bridge. Simon developed a system for trying to guess when to make the drive out to shoot, which involved checking the weather forecast, satellite images and webcams multiple times a day. For about 2 years, if the weather looked promising, he would set his alarm to 5am, recheck the webcams, and then set off on the 45-minute drive to the Marin Headlands.
