Behind the Lens: The Morning



When you're waking up at 4 am to get pictures, scouting all day long and shooting again in the evening, the days are productive but exhausting. If my entire day is based around photography I usually depend on coffee beans to keep me in the race. At this point I have a romance with first light, a morning cup of coffee, and a fantastic location.

Today's Shot 314

Photographer Note: I drove into Hidden Valley campground and stumbled onto this fantastic scene of a climbing family enjoying their morning. Tom told me they were spending three weeks climbing throughout the United States. We cracked a couple jokes, got to to know each other a little bit and here's the picture.
