I patiently waited for this massive bank of clouds to move to the peak I was looking at from my hotel balcony so I could grab the movement and capture its massiveness.
The early photographers, who scaled mountains to get that shot, did not have it easy at all. Cameras were big, bulky and fragile. They had to lug it up either on their back or on a pack mule. Could you imagine?
We have it so very easy these days, don't we. I "lugged up" my gear (I decided to leave by tripod in the hotel room to make it easier!) by taking the mountain train and then gondola to get to the 2660 meters above Davos, Switzerland.

I had forgotten about this photograph I took back in Dec. of 2012 at Mission Santa Barbara. When I looked at it, I remembered why I took the shot. It was because of the wonderful light. The trees pull you into the tower that stands as a reminder of the distant past.
Love the Light!
