sssssssssssssss…that was the sound of the wind blowing through the tall grasses out on Russian Ridge. It was great, but also made me jumpy while I took this shot, because there was a lot of movement, and grass kept touching me from behind. I had to hike down a steep hill, through tall grass, to get this shot. I thought for sure I’d find a rattlesnake and run out of there like I was on fire.
I love this photo. It’s rare that I feel that way about my work, but I enjoy all of the elements in this one. The sky could have been more interesting, but its not too bad. I still feel like I’m there when I look at this one.
