Windy day no look upclose portrait after a hike
I should have submitted this photo but I didn’t for National Rail Day 2012; Amtrak was sponsoring a contest for best travel photo that day. I don’t know if it was my fear of success or if it was the worry that this was taken on the 1st leg of the trip by bus and not rail. The light was just breaking over the mountains and she was unaware I had even taken a photo… handheld while sitting backwards, 100 ISO 1/100sec @f1.4on the Canon 50mm 1.4 w. 7D. This is the most beautiful shot of the day and maybe even, the best I’ve ever captured.
