New Trail Running Shot

Yesterday morning my assistant and I got up at 4 am to go shoot a new trail running photo for my portfolio. I had already scouted out the location last week that I thought we be sweet. We arrived at the location with my friend David that was going to be our runner for this shot at 5:30 a.m. hiked to where we needed to, with a ladder I might add. Set up so we were perfectly situated when the sun hit, which I was anticipating being at just after 6:00 a.m. We got a little messed up however because there were some clouds blocking the great morning sun I wanted so I changed our shot. I turned around and shot into the clouds and still had a great scene to work with. You just never know how things are going to come together. I knew before hand that I could shoot either direction at this location and it would be good. Good thing because that is exactly what needed to happen. Check it out! Thanks to David and Blake for their help!
