A nice half mile walk in light snow flurries to the north shore of Lake Tahoe. One single composition. A slightly less than nice uphill walk back to the cabin. This is the epitome of selective, low volume shooting.

Maybe I was inspired by a conversation with a rep for a well-known and successful photog over the weekend. Hiking miles to reach a destination carrying about 90 pounds, including a large format camera, 8×10 slides, food, gear. Once there he might use a couple of the slides. It is about the composition.
I am not a high volume shooter to begin with. So maybe this story inspired me. But I have a strong feeling the thought of a Dutch Babies breakfast back at the cabin encouraged me to get back up the hill soon!
