In this job, there’s no avoiding water. Even when the sky is bright blue, I still manage to get soaked. On Tuesday I was assigned to cover frost protection measures in area vineyards. Of course, some growers had sprinklers running to coat young vines from near freezing temperatures. To get a good picture, it means immersing (no pun) yourself in to a shoot. That meant getting under sprinklers to make a decent frame. For those that saw the secondary picture in the Press Democrat this morning on the Empire section (B1), it was a little muddy. Here’s what it looks like:
It was an easy shoot, but I wanted a little more, like people in the picture. I was in the right place at the right time:
It’s not so much that I happened upon the scene, I know that with 500,000 people in this county, someone is bound to be out and around at seven in the morning standing under a sprinkler.
