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.
