Today was a bitter sweet day…I left Heather & California behind for cold & rainy New Jersey. It was hard to leave such a great person and a beautiful place behind but Christmas was here and I must head home back to my family and my buddy Lucas the Lab (oh how I miss him!)
Tonight I’ll leave you with a few shots of our trek into the reserve where we did a shoot yesterday. As soon as Heather and I have time to edit our photos from this shoot we’re going to post them at the same time (we hope). So we’ll leave you with these fun “in action” shots…
On our way to the trail we met James who was also at the Plateau doing photography (he shoots wildlife and sports action photography…and that would be good reason for the 400mm lens and 40D he’s sporting!!). Heather thought it’d be nice to take a photo with him so we could remember all of the photographers we met this week:
Of course I couldn’t leave with out something eventful happening…I realized this morning that I left my point & shoot Canon in the middle of the grassy plateau we did a photo shoot at yesterday. The good (and bad) news was that my flight was delayed almost 2 hours so we had time to stop and I retraced our steps down into the canyon and found it right where I thought I must have left it.
You can imagine my happiness once I found the camera and it still worked (thank goodness for a dry night!!). I took this test shot with it and to my delight it seemed perfectly okay!
The Jen Rinaldi Photography cross-country tour of 2008 had ended and it’s hard to leave friends like Heather and amazing mountainous views like this behind!
