In case you don't follow me on Instagram already, I'm @writegirl. Here's the original photo:
I may (or may not -- I confess to nothing!) have climbed down somewhere a little off-limits and I'm pretty sure the people walking around the pond were wondering what in the world I was doing squatting on some rocks on the edge of a pond at twilight, but it was worth it. You can't tell from this shot, but there are two main roads beyond this pond, and I had to wait quite a while to get this shot without any car headlights in it. Patience -- and strong quads -- pays off!
