i was there and I don't have this shot...whatever that means...
Well if you had spent less time "ragging on my tired behind" to hurry up, you might not have missed it.
BTW, Well done Rob!!
But your flag decal won't get you into Heaven any more. They're already overcrowded from your dirty little war.

However, let me go on record as saying that even if I found St. Ansel's tripod holes at Yosemite, I'd still take the picture!
I would as well. As much as I like Ansel, I think that the foreground appears more prominently in my work than his - so I am sure I would have a different image, as I would shooting the Zion image referred to above.
A few years back I was at a 3 day seminar in Cape Cod. There was a slide contest with the subject, "Red". Well I "found" a red fishing boat the next morning and shot the heck out of it. By 10 am at least 30 other photographers had "found" the same red boat. What I found amazing was that out of hundreds of red boat shots, none were the same.
I think the secret to Zion and unique pictures is to take the big images apart. Get closer, and shoot parts. By the way i did not take that image last fall, when I was there. I did see it though, but it did not strike my fancy. Now I think I missed something. Good Shootin.

So, I think the "greats" were true to their visions, once their visions no longer sucked. Ralph Barker 12/2004
How solid is that rock? Do grains come off when you rub it with your hands or toes? If you pull on juggy handholds and small flakes do they pop off? I need to know because that photograph makes the climber in me DROOL!
