From last weekend, at Farley Ledge in Erving, MA.

Matt smoothing the steep rock at the left end of the sport wall:

…and Zach throwing the moves on a taller piece of rock right of that:

I hadn’t come prepared for this shoot with quite the right lens; the whole forest is grown in with invasive vines, and my line of sight was reduced so as to make Gizmo almost useless. These shots really need context to evoke any emotion, and it was all I could do to get a whole person in the frame!

Anyway, they’re a bit of documentation of what’s happening in my world, and here they are.

You got close enough to show how hard they’re working.

susan, I’m missing the lens I need for these situations, the real “workhorse” of professional photographers, but it presently costs $2200 and I just don’t have it. So I make do, and make it work. And yeah, while Gizmo left me lacking context, it does get in close enough to feel the burn!
