If you can even find the album these days,(stupid iTunes doesn't have it) you'll see this shot is nothing like the cover shot, but I still wanted this title.
My buddy Steve and I were driving Southside Drive one final time, after our triumphant capturing of Horsetail Fall, before heading back to LA.
Our destination was actually Swinging Bridge, but the bridge was in the shadows, and the light was flat. I just happened to catch the sunlight in the forest out of the corner of my eye and said, "Pull over! Now!"
He didn't even bother to get his camera out. But he humored me while I took several semi long exposure tilts - up and down, and back again.
I love trying these shots. You never really know what you're gonna get til you see it in the computer.
