Description

I LOVE HIKING AROUND UPPER HIDDEN VALLEY AND THE UTE TRAIL. ON THIS DAY IT WAS SOCKED IN WITH CLOUDS AT ABOUT 11500FT. I COULD HEAR THE WATER DROPLETS HITTING MY RAIN GEAR AND IT WAS VERY STILL. EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE THES LITTLE HOLES WOULD OPEN UP AROUND ME AND THE SUN WOULD SHINE GIVING ME MOMENTARY OPORTUNITIES TO SHOOT. I USED A POLORIZER AND A LEE GRAD NUETRAL DENSITY FILTER SET TO GET THE DETAIL IN THE CLOUDS WHICH WERE ALL AROUND ME. I STAYED FOR ABOUT AN HOUR UNTIL THE THUNDER AND LIGHTNING STARTED AS THIS AREA IS VERY WELL KNOWN FOR LIGHTNING STRIKES ON PEOPLE. LAST YEAR I WAS FORCED OFF THIS MOUNTAIN BY LIGHTNING AND SOMEONE WAS HIT NOT TO FAR FROM THIS SPOT.
