On my way home from teaching a workshop I spent some time for myself in the Alabama Hills. I'd gotten here so late there was no use in sleeping, so I went to this iconic arch and waited for the sunrise. It was a warm summer night as I lay on a large boulder, my head resting on my camera bag while enjoying the view of the milky way between catnaps. It was a beautiful morning and only one other person showed up…after the sunrise! What I wouldn't give for more mornings like this!
