Lack of Preparation

In my last post I spoke of being prepared and using technology to achieve a goal.  Well, if you use your tech correctly, you probably have a better chance of succeeding.  I made the mistake of not taking in to account the height of the trees up river from where I was shooting from.  That meant I needed to be on site at least thirty or forty minutes earlier than I actually arrived.  Therefore, I did not get the shot I had planned for, but the evening was not a total loss, I did happen to be there to see the full moon rising over the river.  Sadly, I was not properly prepared for that shot, I did not have my tripod with me, I had left it in the car.  I did have my monopod though and did the best I could by bracing it against whatever I was near.  I will try again if weather permits, but at this time our forecast does not look favorable until early next week.

  1. You are not alone. This threw me totally on a recent Swiss trip. I forgot that the sunrise happens a good hour or two before the sun clears the mountains. At which time there are no sunrise colours.

    Still caught a sunset or two.
