There’s nothing quite like hiking up random slopes to get some interesting photography. Thanks to Nate Nelson, good weather, and the Uintas National Forest in Utah, we got what we wanted. Nate was the perfect companion on a little photographic outing: strong hiker, has a photographic eye, is a good friend, and makes sure you get up for the light.
The Singh-Ray filters came in quite handy on this shoot, as usual. Both hard-step and soft-step filters figured into the lineup to balance some of this harsh light on the ridges behind us.
While our goal was the peak above us, the time of the day and the question of whether we could get a tent up on it were two factors in why we chose the ridgeline we did. Oh, and we were pretty beat, too. September wind chill factor adds an extra bite to the air, but we were able to pull together our frozen fingers for awhile to pull off some shots.
