P9063162.jpg

This is a well known scene especially among photographers. It presents the challenge of a dim foreground and sunlit rock formation. We staked out a prime spot and lingered as the light faded. Soon others began to arrive. A van pulled into the parking area at one point and another group of Japanese photographers piled out. They ran onto the bridge and began to hastily set up. They were determined to be ready when the light was right. Again, I was impressed with their enthusiasm. At one point I realized that we were the only Americans among the 25 or so people on the bridge. I could hear French, Spanish, Japanese, Italian, Englandish, German and a Slavic language I couldn’t place. It was quite an international gathering! We got way more shots than necessary and gave our spot to the Japanese photographers to head into town for some dinner.
