Description

It had been a long week of bad weather, with drenching rain that never stopped. On my last day, the forecast called for more rain. Regardless, I got up before sunset, intending to drive to Oxbow bend, further north. As I drove, the clouds began to break a little, and some sun just peaked through as I drove toward the Snake River Overlook. Afraid to miss it, I pulled over to the spot Ansel Adams made famous, and a million photographers have made common, and hurried to set up my tripod just as the sun peaked over the ridge behind me just enough to light the tops of the trees below. I was able to shoot a three panel panorama. I stayed for another hour, but lost the warm light. That's okay; I got this!
