All day long I couldn’t wait to get outside, take a nice long walk and try and capture the winter sky. After yesterday’s frustration with lighting at the bowling alley, I desperately felt the need for redemption to both lift my spirits and get me to feeling back on track. I knew today would be busy, and sure enough, I had to really hustle to get to my spot before I lost all the best lighting to dusk.
If you know me really well, then you know I swear like a truck stop waitress. If there would have been anyone out on the trail with me today they would have heard an earful. I detest wind almost as much as I detest tardiness and bad behavior, but I digress, once I moved above the ridgeline there was no more shelter from the wind and it howled and roared at me. There were times I literally had to anchor my tripod with my body weight for fear it may blow over. I was not impressed with the conditions, but the colors were fantastic so I just kept clicking and resetting, moving and refocusing.
I captured a few shots that really made me happy, and with a renewed sense of confidence, I’m smiling as I post today’s pic…
