Little boy loaded in the truck: check. Camera bag and tripod: check. Sandbar with grit getting everywhere: check. Battery…battery? Oh, seriously. I even have a dual battery grip on my 7D, so how in the world did I get Munsoned out in the middle of nowhere? Well, as you can see I still had something capable of taking photos with me: another Canon DSLR in its bag, which I’d forgotten to remove from my truck yesterday.
Fortunately, I realized this just in the nick of time, and was able to catch the sun just as it was about to disappear over the horizon. I was in the best spot I could think of on short notice, and I think it paid off nicely. Then we came home to watch Courageous with the rest of our little family while I stuck batteries into the charger.
