Well I am well and truly in the midst of the trip to photograph some new landscape images for the portfolio at Spool Photography.
Things have gone well so far, although the continual wake up at 5/5.30am is taking its toll, when my eyes first open. I have to remind myself, no pain no gain and once you get to a location you quickly forget about wanting to go back to bed, its just not a option PERIOD!
Below is a pretty simple unedited short video from a spot a few mornings ago. I think most will recognize the location. On this particular morning Luke Austin shot with me, well kinda, he took off to the other side of the meadow and I was on the other so we will have very different pov’s. I think Luke was trying to shot as much as he could before his bus trip home just a few hours later …
Currently I am in Lake Tahoe for the next few days. Last evening scouted the Bonsai Rock location. On the way back after dark had my first outside of a zoo experience with a Bear(s). Crossing hwy 28 after dark was Mother and cub making their way up the mountain, very very very cool. Sadly no pics as I was driving and had to slow down to let them cross I tried with snap a Iphone pic but shit Apple dropped the ball on the camera in the Iphone, its shocking in low light. This morning I headed up to a familiar spot Emerald Bay, watched another gorgeous sunset over Lake Tahoe with no one around, just me siting on a rock in the wilderness with Eagle Falls and a view overlooking this incredible lake. All one could hear was the morning birds, a deer or 2 in the bush and the waterfall, bliss.
Well we have strekky white clouds starting to appear, so no point sitting here, time to get back out there. You just never know when the next killer shot is, but the location is not sitting in from of a computer ….
