Hard to tell in the black and white photos.  ;)

Gray is the norm for redwood on the California Coast in the moisture of the fog on houses and decks. 
Bridges and trestles turn gray too.
There is (or was) a great example north of Fort Bragg, CA over Pudding Creek, is a nice warm shade of gray. 
In searching images it comes right up, so it must be still there.

Steven - You're right and I stand corrected.  I always kept my redwood stained and the tannin was a real problem while the wood was green.  If I had left it natural I'm sure it would have turned silvery-grey.  Thanks for the note.
