Fog Happens--Even in Palos Verdes

Sisters Ireland 2010

The Palos Verdes Peninsula hugs the coastline of the South Bay of Los Angeles.  Coastal fog is a common phenomena and another reason it is so important to have a photographic record of the view.  The Tuesday tour of new listings in Palos Verdes included a number of homes with panoramic views--all were obscured by heavy fog.  However, two agents had gorgeous brochures with stunning view shots prominently displayed for those unfamiliar with the view.

Southern California is noted for sunshine (My sister and I discovered Ireland is not), and we do have more than our fair share of such days.  However,  it's a savvy agent who realizes a panoramic view may be less than 100% when a prospective buyer tours the property, and captures the view in all its glory on the glossy "take-with-you brochure.  It's a weather backup plan worth having in place even in sunny Southern California.
