Well, after more than two weeks of packing and unpacking, schlepping a moving truck 1,500 miles in a two-vehicle caravan with a strung-out cat, and one broken toe; it’s so great to finally be back in Colorado!
Despite my cracked phalange, I was able to get out to shoot once last week, just off Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park. Unfortunately I had to throw in the towel on some backpacking plans, but it was still great to get out just once even if it was basically roadside shooting. This particular evening was pretty hazy due to smoke blowing down from wildfires all the way in Canada; visibility in the other direction was probably less than a mile. Still, the smoke made for a pretty nice vivid sunset.
It’s been a while since I’ve shot or processed anything at all, and man do I feel rusty! It’s funny how fast you can loose it when you’re not out shooting regularly. The rock on the right is kind of a nagging reminder of that for me in this comp, but I still felt like I wanted to run with it. I feel even rustier on the processing end, but still really enjoyed struggling through this one and getting my feet wet again. One thing’s for sure, I really can’t wait to start getting back out there and getting the creative gears turning again…
Tomorrow I start my new job with The Wilderness Society and I couldn’t be more excited (and a little nervous). With that, here’s to new beginnings!
