Pine at Sunset

West Coast of Corsica
Corsica, France, 2002

It had been a lovely afternoon, topped off by a brilliant sunset. When I finished shooting, I hoisted my PhotoTrekker onto my back. I realized with a (literal) thud that I'd neglected to close the cover first. My 16-35L lens had catapulted over an 8 foot cliff, and bounced to the water's edge. Amazingly, the Canon folks were able to repair it for a reasonable charge.
