Frosted Trees, Yosemite

Posted by
Gary Hart (California, United States) on 26 February 2009 in Landscape & Rural.

This is from last week's workshop. I led the group to Swinging Bridge, a beautiful view of Yosemite Falls reflected in the Merced River, but I've shot there so many times I left my camera in the car. About 100 feet down the path to the bridge I saw these trees across the meadow and immediately turned around and got my camera. After carefully composing my shot I clicked my remote release but nothing happened--a quick glance at my LCD revealed Canon's dreaded "Error 99." Last year had similar problems in cold weather and sent it back to Canon, who promised they'd fixed it. Most frustrating. After about 10 minutes of trying everything I could to revive the camera I gave it a good whack on the side and it came back to life. Fortunately the scene hadn't changed and I got my shot, but needless to say the camera is now back in the shop.

This image will be in my book, "The Undiscovered Country," which will be available at Barnes & Noble in September. I have a hard deadline to get high-res versions of the images to the publisher by Friday, so that's where my focus has been this week. I'm pretty excited about what we've come up with--if you're interested in seeing it drop me a line and I'll keep you posted on the status. Also, if you want to order a signed copy let me know by Friday (2/27) and I'll reserve one for you.
