I am getting old.
OK 57 isn’t that old.
On my overnight trips I have been cutting back on the QUANTITY of camera gear I carry. One body, a lens or two, and a couple filters. And a tripod. Except yesterday to my trip to Spokane Washington. I forgot my tripod. Guys like Moose Peterson are constantly bragging about their handholding prowess. Not me. I especially need the tripod when shooting a little longer exposures like when I am shooting water.
Here’s the test. The next few shots I hand held. Next week when I go back I will shoot again with a tripod. Obviously the leaves and color may be gone. We’ll see what happens.
