Belay On

While camping with the kids this last weekend I took advantage of being at one of the closest rock climbing areas to the Dallas / Fort Worth area and made sure to bring my camera.  Being a rather mild winter where we are already seeing temperatures in the mid 60s and low 70s,  I was surprised the crag wasn’t just packed with people.  Probably a good thing it wasn’t as Brady was trying to be a bit more helpful than he needed to be.

My favorite image from the first set was of this guy belaying his partner.  I just loved his whole look in this environment.  As soon as he glanced over at me I grabbed this image.  And capturing him at an angle that  you can see the climber in the reflection of his glasses was just icing.

Post Processing: LightroomNik Color Efex ProPhotoshop
Shot Info: 1/80 sec at f 5.6, ISO 200 

I can’t wait to go back to the park, maybe in the spring and try and get some shots from above.  My gear is hidden away somewhere.  It would be nice to take it out, dust it off and put it to use again.
