Notes

What motivates me is finding new challenges, and challenging my own preconceived notions of what makes a great photo. For this shot I did something I never do because I always thought it was against the rules or the easy way out: I took my camera and tripod with me on my way to work one morning and pulled off the side of the highway, to a popular vista point that doesn't really provide original compositions. I set up my tripod with the car still running and took this photo about two feet away from the fence in front of me. I was done in less than five minutes, jumped back in the car, and then headed off to my day job. When I got home later and downloaded the file, I was pleasantly surprised with what I had captured. It's not a great shot, however it taught me a very valuable lesson about what constitutes earning the shot and finding an original composition that feels new in a very familiar place.

Description
