The experiences I create for myself (and for you) are what life is about. It was very likely that this evening would have left me standing in a grey cloud until after the sun set "somewhere to the west". I committed to being there, and Mother Nature rewarded my perseverence. As I stood in the cold patiently, I was felt something behind me. I turned and looked over my left shoulder and was very excited to see a little window of red light shining in the entrance to the valley. I waited patiently, leaving my 4x5 field camera set on this composition. Over the course of about 15 minutes, I watched this band of sunset light slowly dance along the canyon wall and into my composition. This is the magic I dream of. This is the magic I share with you!
