Photographer's Note

the total count of things lost, broken and forgotten during the short trip to Yellowstone is impressive even for us - cable release (one), ND gradient filter (two, if counting the one the left at home. the other fell into a hot spring and has probably dissolved by now), cir-pol filter (one). but I still say the trip was worth it.

about the photo: this sunrise over Yellowstone river at around 6AM was our reward for religiously getting up every day at 4AM in hope of capturing the morning light, although usually it was snowing, raining and no light visible until noon. but on the last day, when driving into the park while it was still pitch black, at precisely 5:03 I realised that those are not Christmas lights shining above, those are stars! which meant that the sky was clear and we could hope for a beautiful morning. and it was.

I wanted to capture the fog and mist rising from the river on this chilly morning, so I used a fairly long exposure and needed the cable release for the tripod-mounted camera. I honestly don't know what happened with that darned thing after this, but the fact remains - 10 minutes later the cable release was nowhere to be found. I bet it decided to stay and join bisons in their morning swim. cannot say I blame it.
