From Chris about this image:
SOCIAL: Instagram instagram.com/kristupha/
This shot is a number of firsts: • first time at Pigeon Point and the outer SF area; • first battle with Karl the Fog (Karl doesn't mess around!);
• first MW & Perseid shoot;
• and first stacking attempt (I lie, it's my third; I'll share those some other time).
In addition to firsts, clouds were moving in fast from the east, and the fog from the ocean to the west, all signals to an early evening. Add to that light pollution from cars coming and going and for sure thought it'd be a bust.
Imagine the elation you get when getting a good result when you think everything is stacked (no pun intended, sorta) against you.
A welcome outcome are members of the community met here: Sean, Mario, and Katarina Bates - whom posted an amazing shot in front of the Juniper Tree at Joshua Tree National Park just earlier that week.
Think of all the people in this FB group and all the places in the world to meet, and it was here! The world got that much smaller, and reinforces the power of a tight-knit community like this.
