Image No. 36 thru No. 40 – Places You Never Knew
When researching for a photo trip, you will always end up learning about places you’ve never heard of before that you feel you must explore. During the trip, you’ll probably talk with other photographers about places they’ve been to that you’ve never heard of and feel the need to visit those places as well. And then there are times you just happen onto a place not even listed in a guide book or map, that forces you to pull to the side of the road to take some photos.

 

It’s always an adventure to see places you’ve never been to before, but what makes some places a bit more exciting, is exploring those that not many people have heard of, much less visited, places where there is actually some semblance of solitude.
The Bisti is one of those places I found out about doing my research that I felt I had to visit, while Kanarra Creek is something I learned about researching as well, but it wasn’t until I talked to some photographers that I felt I had to put it on my agenda sometime during the trip. It was well worth the additional effort to hike it although it really wore me out. And the aspens growing in basalt fields were a bonus just to happen to pass them, certainly something of a Wow! to see huge fields of ancient lava flows similar to those occurring today in Hawaii. Tomorrow, we’ll see some images from another site I’ve been wanting to photograph for quite a while that I came across researching for a trip years ago but never really made it there. Some say a well prepared photographer makes his own luck, but I don’t mind being mindlessly lucky now and then.
