D70 Yosemite Panorama
The only thing I hate more than being cold is being really really cold. This ism is the image where I learned, besides that the only thin I like cold is beer and ice cream (I really don't like beer), is when you are shooting in really really really cold environments be sure to bring a cooler, keep it in the trunk and put your camera bag in the cooler, and ALWAYS put your cameras and lenses in the cooler as long as you are shooting. The reason for this is if the inside of the car is toastie warm and the outside of the car is so cold that you become a photog-a-cicle. When you get inside the car you may be frosting but the camera gear is fogging because of condensation. It took me an hour and a half at the Awanee Lodge for my lenses to de-fog. Rough life...
Another important lesson was at the time I shot this I did not know how to assemble it. I am in the process of organizing the severs at my studio and I cam across this image in parts and pieces. SO don't trow something away now because your technique is not up to the task today. Tomorrow is always another day and as photographers we do get better with age.
