Listening to Your “Little Man” (or Woman)

I just love this time of year in Colorado. Not only do we have some amazing mountain landscapes, but fall in CO is just to die for. Currently I am on a 6 day shooting fest of the San Juan Mountains, joining up on occasion with fellow photogs Sarah Fischler and Ron Coscorrosa. After making our way to Telluride, Sarah and Ron choose to head back to a location we were shooting earlier in anticipation of an incoming and the fact that the Telluride area was still partly green (as far as Aspen fall colors go). I ended up driving to one of my favorite spots on Last Dollar Road and decided to stick it out. In the end I was greeted with an EPIC 1 hour and 15 minutes of light. Sarah and Ron still came away with great work, but I am stoked that I stayed and listened to my gut.

Lesson of the Day….listen to your little man or woman. They may not always be spot on, but failing to listen to them can leave you wishing for that EPIC light that could have been.
