Every photo has a story...
Having shot from the bridge with little success on other trips, getting there this time was a priority. Having spent the day playing up river we, (my wife and I) knew we needed to get our butts down stream for sunset. The shuttle service was running, so we we're dependent on it, which was fine, except it's a bit slow going with all the stops along the way.
Looking out of the bus window, the patchy clouds were starting to glow and we've got a few more miles yet. Then this tourist needed to see the deer along the road and the driver has stopped to wait for these mule deer to standup from the warm pavement, I'm starting to get a little angst, I'm thinking where can we get out and take advantage of the light and just blow off the bridge, but the valley gets pretty narrow and without a plan I knew there wasn't time. Finally, we arrive and there are at least 25 shooters in place, sucking up all the available light and I'm thinking, be tactful here, but I wanted to use my Zeiss 21mm, so I had to penetrate the wall of shooters. Without wasting anytime this fellow calls me over to share his space and this is the shot.
