I’m in Southern Utah for a weekend rock climbing trip with the family and some friends. Before heading out to the walls and going off the grid for a few days, I thought I’d post an image that fits in with the activities.

This image was taken as part of a series I did recently for Michelle to use on her blog. Photographing in the rock climbing gym can be a bit tricky because the existing lighting is pretty ‘blah’ and using strobes isn’t really much of an option. For this shot I found a spot on the lead climbing wall that had sunlight hitting it from an overhead window and had the climber get into that area while I stood on the top of a 10′ ladder. The sunlight created a rather hard shadow which I later softened with a fill-light, but I kind of like it in this capture.

Have a great weekend!
