Checking out different light with Jen tonight.
Before the sun set.
After the sun set behind San Jacinto.
Had to stop to shoot the very brief color (that I turned into black and white:-) in the sky this morning before meeting Jen for our hike.

April 27, 2013 Early morning fog over Lake Morena at Lake Morena Campgrand, 20 miles north of the Mexican/CA border.
I asked Yogi to back up the car so I could shoot this little guy posing so patiently on a road side rock as we drove in Joshua Tree.
Yogi and her boyfriend Matt have been staying here until they leave tomorrow for the ADZPCTKO annual backpacking event this weekend at the Lake Morena Campground, located on the PCT, 20 miles north of the Mexican border. I’ll be headed down on Thursday, and Melissa and Jen arrive on Friday, late afternoon.
Here is a photo of this year’s Class of 2013 PCT bandanas.
I’ve known Yogi since April of 2002 when I met her at the beginning of our thru-hikes that year. I’ve never known Yogi to have a boyfriend. She’s waited for the right one…..And….she found the right one in Matt when they met, Yogi’s 3rd day doing a thru-hike, on the AT.

Zoomed in view of one of the Lyrid Meteors 4am this morning.

From two to six today Jen and I finally got back to practicing Unit 4 in our 6 Unit NYIP Course. There are 5 or 6 Lessons in this Unit and for this assignment we were practicing north facing window light coupled with a reflector on the shady side. We added the Westcott Apollo Orb softbox (above camera) and liked the lighting best.

North facing window light on Jen’s right side. Second light source – a reflector just off Jen’s left elbow. Forty three” Apollo Orb above camera. (Wescott’s octagonal softbox…it doesn’t require an adapter ring!.)
Cropped this shot to 16 x 9. Same setup as first.
Before the golfers came by on the back nine (right outside my door) I walked across the Palmer Course 15th fairway for some 8am reflection shots.
