Captivated by the beauty of the pale yellow aspens against the deep blue sky at almost 10,000 feet, I decided to try to capture the way in which they made my spirit soar. While I think the image does that, I'm glad no one actually saw me make the image. Here's my equipment: camera, coke bottle, and map. I laid on the ground on my back, using the half-full coke bottle to prop/cushion my neck. With my right hand, I held and shot the camera. My left hand held a map that I positioned just out of the wide-angle sight line to block the sunlight that otherwise would have produced lens flare. I must have looked like a crazy-man writhing on the ground, but I got my shot!
