half dome ignition

    Well I'm back, and as promised - I'm sore, tired, and most definitely smelly.

    I spent most of the weekend sleeping, catching up on TV, and doing laundry. I think I snuck a shower in there as well. I'm now ready to rejoin the human race, and flickr.

    The trip was absolutely excellent. The weather? Perfect. The fall color? Ballin. The sunrises? Amazing. The sunsets? Holy Crap. As I said before w/ my Tetons set - photos don't do this place justice. But that's not gonna stop me from trying. I took a few photos - 4900 or so. I can't imagine more than 30 are worth sharing.

    I started my trip with a two day workshop with Stephen Oachs and Brian Rueb.
    These guys have got game.

    Stephen and Brian put us in the right spot at at the right time over and over again. It's like they turned the waterfalls on, called in the clouds, and painted the leaves. I learned alot, had lots o' fun, and met new flickr friends like - Sue, Nicole, Steve, and Amy. If you're interested, you can read an entire write-up about the workshop here.

    And that was only the first two days...I stuck around for additional 3.5 days of shooting. It was fantastic, but I made a very expensive mistake... I'll get into that later...

    Here's a shot of Half Dome at sunset as seen from Glacier Point in Yosemite. It's easily one of the best sunsets I've ever witnessed. I took a lot of photos as the sunset progressed so this is not the last view from Glacier Point you'll see from me...but I thought it was a good place to start.

    Have a great week everyone!
