Tule Fog on White Slough, Stockton, California

Here are five photos that I took from Village West Marina of tule fog on White Slough in Stockton, California. Tule fog is common here in The Delta in the winter season. The blue heron seems to a patience hunter in the dead tree branch along the levee.

During this morning dense tule fog, I took these pictures along the San Joaquin River. I drove from home in Stockton, California, west on March Lane Drive until I reached the levee road. The fog was dense on the river. I could not see the opposite bank. When I heard a fog horn, I waited for the ship to appear. I used a Nikon D600 FX camera with two Nikkor lenses, a 20 mm lens and a 50 mm lens. I applied a sepia tone to the images in Photoshop. The fog creates a different perspective and ambiance of the river and boats.
