Busiek Silver/Yellow Trail hike. Taken at the end of the hike.


This is a rescued image. I’d managed to flick the exposure compensation dial round to +3 stops (I only use the camera in ‘auto’ mode for selfies. I normally shoot full manual). All the color information was lost, but I managed to pull out this image by converting it to black and white.

The temperature was in the 80s, and I had just finished my hike with 920′ of elevation gain, so I’m allowed to look a little sweaty. It was a busy day on the trails — even the back ones. I saw over 20 people on the hike.

I took this with the camera upside down — it’s easier to hold the camera release the shutter single handed that way — I’ve just realized it automatically flipped it the right way up when I imported it.
