Here is a fun photo. My step-son Jake asked me to take some photos of him on his skateboard doing tricks.
After about an hour of some outstanding tricks on his behalf and some wicked cool shots on my behalf we headed back home. I was of course on foot following him on his skateboard when I noticed the shadows and highlights hitting him as his skated down the road. The sun was low in the sky and was creating long shadows (just the way I like it) as the light came through the trees. I quickly raised my camera and grabbed this photo.
This became our favorite shot of the day. We felt that this photo summed up the whole afternoon. Please enjoy.
