While recovering from a shoulder injury in the fall, we experienced a cloud inversion for almost two weeks.  Sitting at home one afternoon, I had a feeling I was missing out (FOMO or FOMAS) and rallied to the top of one of our trails.  As I reached the top, I saw the most amazing light display I had ever seen.  Without anyone to shoot and the light quickly fading, I only had a few minutes to set up the tripod and remote trigger (which I ended up triggering in my mouth).  Pretty happy with the results and the next day I returned with a rider and experienced the same light, this time for almost an hour.  A few of the resulting images ended up gracing the pages of Bike Magazine, including the closing spread of the Photo Annual.

 Those inversion periods are weird. We get them in Puget Sound area sometimes too. In winter its like an icy fog, motionless, all around. Then you climb up 2000' and its clear chill blue.

 Because this one is natural light and the one in the link is artificial. To be honest I like this one better.

 because it was 3 months ago, and because this one is better.

 (Oh and complaining jealously about a POD is not the best way to get friends and to get a POD)
