I was racing the rising sun during the creation of this image. The higher it got, the more of the beautiful trees behind the river were irradiated by harsh light but at the same time, it illuminated the surface of the water and allowed me to capture the essence of the light and it's effect on the entire canyon. Or I just have a really nice camera. One of the two. ;)

Workshops for next year are filling up fast with some already over 50% full. If you sign up with a friend, I will extend you each a $25 discount.

For those interested, I have updated the Exposure Northwest website with most of next years workshops. For more information please visit exposurenorthwest.wordpress.com/ or shoot me an email for more detailed information.
