Monday evening was spent at El Cap Meadow. This is the meadow that is opposite of El Capitan. It is filled with old Oak Trees that certain owls love to hang out in. So the whole time i was out there i was looking around trying to find that blasted bird which i have yet to find. A few nights back, RC got an amazing shot of El Capitan through the forest at its base, so that was one thing that everyone was looking for as we were out there. Of course i was one of those people who had to try and get that shot. Did i…. no, but i did have time and material to play with other things. Somewhere between 6 and 7 o clock, the fog started rolling in across the meadow and the Oak Trees began to get lost. Nothing looks better than an Oak Tree in fog, it’s just mysterious and spooky. I kept looking, and looking, and looking, didn’t find that one shot. A whole lot of bad shots were taken in this process, until right before we started to leave, the fog got thicker and this tree popped out. In the last second that shot was there, and it just goes to share that waiting does have it’s benefits.
