Special Light at Lake Junaluska, NC

Yesterday morning we had wonderful mist around our local lake – Lake Junaluska

The light was incredible and getting better. So I did a lot of shooting… But we also had some light rain, the kind that can get you wet without seeming to be there. So, unless you camera is weather sealed and my walk around outfit – a Nikon d90 with an 18-200mm lens – isn’t, I chose a camera bag that allows me easy access of my equipment. My choice is my MindShift rotation 180 panorama backpack because it’s sooooo comfortable and the camera is right there without taking the pack off. Click on this link for a demonstration on the different features of bags. My “go to” walk around is the Panorama. If I need more capacity, the 180 Pro fits the bill.
