Adrift is, as described by photographer Simon Christen, ‘a love letter to the fog of the San Francisco Bay Area’. And what a romantic letter it is, Simon woke up at 5am almost every day for two years to take photographs of the fog above San Fransisco at sunrise.

Sometimes, even after checking the forecast, satellite images and webcams profusely, he would still arrive with the fog too high, low or already gone. But when he was lucky, and the conditions were just right, he captured something incredible. The background music by The Album Leaf sets the mood for the short film perfectly.
