I never imagined that fog could be so engaging, but Simon Christen certainly did. He's the filmmaker behind Adrift, a "love letter to the fog of the San Francisco Bay Area." Shot over a period of two years, Christen captured his remarkable time lapse video of the fog gliding in over the hills, the bridge and the city by waking up at 5am every morning to check that the weather conditions would be perfectly aligned. Attempting to evoke the same feeling of happiness that accompanied these stunning scenes, Adrift is an extraordinary work that represents a collection of his favorite shots from these excursions.
