As a follow-up to “Perseverance” and from that same gallery, I have attached another motivational print titled “Determination”. Same concept different location. This cliff is located along a trail in the Cascade Mountain Range called “Little Si“. It’s an elevation gain of 1200 ft from the valley floor near North Bend, Washington. My youngest daughter put me onto this trail and asked me to hike it with her. Stunning views…great trail and the elevation gain properly tasked us for the 10 mile hike. Never going anywhere without my camera, I took a series of shots on that hike. This photograph was one of them. While I was watching this guy struggle on his climb, the word determination came to mind. After seeing some of the final shots, I picked this one to use in my Inspiration Gallery.
I am featuring an art print from my Inspiration Gallery called “Perseverance” . This is a motivational poster using some of the photography I took last year on a photo shoot in Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area just outside of Las Vegas. The picture shows some guys rock climbing in the canyon. What makes it interesting is that you don’t actually see the climbers initially. While I was taking the shot, I didn’t even catch them in my lens. It wasn’t until later when I was reviewing the shoot that I saw them. Once you see the climbers, the capture becomes even more impressive as your perspective of the size of the rock changes dramatically. Perseverance is the term that came to mind, so I created a motivational poster.
