Ferryman (Wawona Road Repair Convoy), Yosemite

Nice guy doing a difficult job along California State Route 41 from Yosemite to Wawona. This was shot through a windscreen/shield at ISO 1600 (about as high as you want to push the 5D MKii) - hence the (moody, atmospheric) grain. He'd just explained we'd have to wait ten minutes, and whilst it seemed rude to get out and point a camera at him, I thought I should get a shot nonetheless.

 

There was a distinct "journey to Hades" feel - the dark, groaning forest on all sides, the lone, grim marshal and the uncertain wait. Hope everyone is having a great week.
