The Big M

First message on the iPhone landing at BWI yesterday (on time for the first time in quite sometime), was from Bill asking me about a photo of a deer at Big Meadows in Shenandoah National Park.  Bill has a good memory, that snap was take in June '05.  Drove out there real early from DC, starting out around 4AM I think. Entered the park at Thornton Gap from VA 211 and took the shot below at one of the first overlooks heading south on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Always liked this snap of the sun coming up over the Virginia Piedmont.

Wish DSLRs had built-in GPS, there are ways to do it, some easy and expensive some cheap and somewhat clumsy.  It is easy and essentially free in the iPhone.  Canon 10D with 24-70 f2.8 @70mm, .6s exposure on the Gitzo.
