Every month I feature a new image for download for you to use as your desktop background. Click to download it and see it at its huge size and resolution.

To me, November means cold and crisp. In San Francisco it can mean cold and foggy. Very cold and very foggy. These pictures were taken on the Marin side of the Golden Gate Bridge on a frigid day when the fog was so thick, you could hardly see five feet in front of you. Serious fog.

Enjoy!


I have loved living in the San Francisco Bay Area. It’s not all peaches and plentiful parking but it has been a fabulous place to live and, if the conditions were right, I would stay here forever.

I look forward to moving to Pennsylvania for the new year, but there will always be a soft spot in my heart for this area and all of the wonderful people I’ve met during my stay here.

“There are so many beautiful parts of the world . . . Thailand, Italy, the south of France. There are places in Spain that are astonishing. But here . . . 25 miles and you go up on Mount Tam to see the fog come in; 25 miles the other direction and you’re somewhere else that takes your breath away. There’s no question this is where I want to live. Never has been.”
– Robin Williams

December Desktop Images
December? December?! What? How? When did that happen? I could have sworn it was just October. Things at Lindsay Docherty Photography are just crazy. Winter is supposed to be slow but if you’ve seen all the blogging the past few weeks and months, you’ll know that there is plenty going on. It’s almost to the point where I need to put “breathe” on my ‘to do’ list just as a reminder. But I can’t complain. Things are pretty awesome. My couples continue to inspire and delight me and looking forward to 2012 has me on pins and needles with excitement. Things aren’t just busy in my business life, but I’m heading out to Las Vegas on Saturday ...
