I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Mine was quite relaxing, and I even got to do some hiking and camping Friday after getting out of my workshop (Transition to Civilian Life) early.
Also, if you were wondering, the status of my D800 from B&H Photo still reads Backordered!!! And I pre-ordered within hours of it being available on the site. It erks me a bit to see NPS (Nikon Professional Service) members getting priority treatment, while the rest of us are left waiting patiently for any kind of status update. I guess I can’t get too peeved about it, I do have a pretty sweet camera as is. I feel like a kid waiting for christmas to come and my toy to get here.
After packing all my gear and making some awesome homemade energy bars (raisins, smart start cereal, crisp crumbled bacon, peanut butter, crushed almonds, 3 eggs – mix, spread out in glass tray, cook for 15 minutes on 400 deg or until hard), I headed out for the town of Avellino and Mount Terminio. I will have another post about the entire hike and awesome landscape I got to trek through, but I wanted to share this sunset shot first. The clouds below were just amazing, and it literally felt like I was standing on Mount Olympus. I scouted out my sunset location and composition, framed it early, and waited patiently for the sun to go down. Enjoy!
Thanks for stopping by! Check back tomorrow!
