Picture of the Month – August 2003
I had an assignment to photograph Glass Beach in Fort Bragg so I decided to make a motorcycle trip out of it. When I left Ferndale it was foggy as it often is, but it cleared up quickly as it often does. It stayed clear all the way until I reached the coast again just past Westport, where I noticed the fog bank was starting to roll in. I couldn’t resist stopping for this picture, even though I knew I might not make it to Fort Bragg in time. Sure enough by the time I got to Glass Beach I was greeted with an overcast sky. Even though I took some good pictures, the travel magazine that wanted them was looking for something sunnier so they didn’t end up getting used. So it was a good thing I stopped and took this picture, otherwise the trip would have been for naught.
