Theme/Blur: A Tale of Corruption, Tall Pines and Multiple Exposure

It's a long story. You can visit my blog for the details. Suffice it to say that yesterday's images were thought lost due to corrupt files on my CF card which cause a major CRASH. I spent 90 minutes on the phone with Adobe getting LR back up and running. I transferred all old images to a new file. I had to delete all images from yesterday. BUT THEN, later last night, I discovered a complete set of the images thought lost resting comfortably, and unaware of any corruption, on my external hard drive back-up. They once were lost but now they're found... and here for all to see!

This is a 10-image multiple exposure. Images shot at 1/50 sec @ f/11; ISO 400; -1/3 EV; AWB; FL 62mm

Canon 30D; 24-70 2.8L; tripod-mounted for a bit more horizontal stability.

Image cropped to an 14x11 perspective.

It's My Nature
Photography by Ed Vatza

My "philosophy of life" as pertains to my photography:
1) I take my photography very seriously.
2) I don't take anything so seriously that I can't laugh, joke and have fun.
3) Learning is a lifetime process. When we stop learning, we stop living.

Thank you all.

Might I remind you that this was an image that almost was lost to a corrupt memory card. To this day, I still don't know how I saved those images but am certainly glad I was able to!
