  1. Incredible! I personally totally suck with single handed photography, so hats off! Posted 4 months ago
    1. Thank you!I suck at it too, but I managed this shot by sitting on the ground all scrunched up with my camera balanced on my knees...and of course, I held my breath. I would have liked to get some more clarity, but I still thought it was a neat shot.

      PS - I think it would be so funny to see photos of photographers in the weird, awkward positions that they find themselves in, just so they can get a shot...
