After somewhat of a blitzkrieg trip it seems like, I have had my last morning shooting on the road trip leading up to the NANPA summit. I am glad I arranged to have the gate opened an hour early at the park. It allowed me to get into position and be selective in where I would be when the first golden light from the rising sun washed across the landscape. There is a certain peace knowing that you are the only soul in a particular location, able to take your time and work in the still silence of the morning. The only thing missing from the morning was having Michelle with me to enjoy it. Sure, it’s great to be out there by yourself sometimes, but other times, I wish that she was here with me to share it.
