If you're not following him yet, check out my buddy Brian Adelberg, whose idea it was to come up here tonight. He'll have some good stuff coming as well!
Several images to come from this night.. had all kinds of good light. In addition to the more standard color everyone chases, which you see here, I'm pretty stoked about some super golden direct light - and a unique composition I found.
HOWEVER, the title of this image refers to a very real situation. My tripod is lost. I left it on top of my car like an idiot, as I unlocked it - and left it up there. It fell off the roof somewhere on Highway 26 coming down from Mt Hood. I hated the thing anyway, since it was heavy and each leg had its own set of problems.. but I wasn't planning on replacing it right NOW :(
