The Ed Heaton seminar included several hours of shooting on and around the Airline Trail. Being the recluse that I am, I quickly split away from the group and went off in a direction that I knew would offer some good opportunities. But I never made it to the destination I had in mind because as I was walking I heard the faint sound of running water. I quickly veered off the trail and followed an old rock wall down a short, steep embankment, where I encountered the perfect spot to shoot. I took several shots of the stream and a few shots of a couple of other interesting things, then decided it was time to retrace my steps. On the way up the embankment I spied this drainage tunnel, which would have been impossible to see on the trek down to the creek. I love surprise discoveries! You can see how close to the trail the tunnel is, yet there’s nothing that would indicate to anyone above that it’s there. I took two quick shots then continued on my way, all the while thinking that it’s probably a rare person who even knows the tunnel is there.
