Here's a photo I shot on my 4 day backpacking trip through Coyote Gulch. It was brutal lugging an 8x10 down into that canyon -- and this might be the only LF shot I ever take there. I know my limits, and this trip was certainly walking the line. If you want to check out my daily video journals from this trip, please visit my Youtube Channel

Hey Ben,

What a cool shot, the flow of water is sweet. Carrying that LF around had to have been quite the pain. Maybe hiring pack animals next time would be the way to go?

Hi Ben,

Sounds like a difficult trip. Was this really the only picture you took during the trip? If so, it's a very impressive one. It seems like a perfect comination of great delicacy in the water and foliage and timeless rock formations. The soft light blends the two seamlessly.

Ben, I have it on good authority that Ansel did use pack animals... ;-)

This must become a cover shot, Ben. Fabulous image! You know, they do make a smaller version of your camera for backpacking.....I don't know how you carried camping gear and the big rig.
