Getting a great picture is as much good fortune as anything. I know many great photographers that understand their camera inside and out but they do not get any really great images. I know other photographers that struggle to understand ISO and shutter speed but they get lots of great images. So why the difference???
I LOVE Writing on Stone for so many reasons. I have a hard time saying that in the heat of the summer as it is so hot but this time of year it is GREAT!!!
Last weekend I found myself on the way to Writing on Stone with clear skies and almost a full moon. The large moon was not the best for night shots but would be great for seeing at night as I walked around the park after dark. The sunset was okay, it would have been nice for a couple clouds but again it was warm, no snow and great just to be outside after such a long winter!
The first positive signs of spring finally started to appear and I decided that I should make a run to Waterton. I also was hoping to spend the night in the new van so I thought that it would be a good chance to do both things at once. Environment Canada changed the weather forecast just before I left on Friday advising of very strong winds all day on Saturday so the night in the van ended up being postponed. This early in the year strong winds mixed with lots of snow in the bush and muddy trails was more than I wanted to deal with but that did not stop me from at least heading out for the day.
