Behind The Lens

Location
Hiking the rim trail at Smith Rock State park in central Oregon, this shot is overlooking the Crooked River. There are several trails, up to the top of the rocks,along the rim as well as down by the river where you can see two people in this shot. This was taken in mid September when temperatures are a little cooler, but you still need to watch for rattlesnakes. Mid afternoon is not necessarily the best lighting time, but this 2:00 pm shot had the help of overhead clouds and the rocks themselves lend dark and light contrasts. Canon Rebel xti, 1/160 sec f/8 25mm
