Some topo map and online research led me to this private property overlook which allows public use. Unbeknownst to me, I had stumbled upon an Instagram hotspot. I knew the location has a “classic” shot. Much to my surprise the amphitheater overlook was slammed with 100+ people (before full COVID restrictions were lifted). The vast majority were armed with smartphones to properly document waking up before sunrise on their social media highlight reals.
Walking a hundred feet away thinned the crowds, removed the hand of man, and make the layered background into the photo subject.
I’ll remember this one for a while. Thought I’m not certain it’ll be remembered for all the right reasons.
