THE CRUX


The original photograph of Travis was taken by my husband Ralph who was hanging on the other side of the rock with one hand and camera in the other! Boys will be boys! As if this was not challenging enough, just prior to capturing this image they had disturbed a bees nest and was fighting off angry bees between shots.
   The title "The Crux" is a climbing term which refers to the hardest move on a route or the hardest section of a climb.Sports portraits are some of my favorites to create because of the action and feeling they give the viewer. 
   With summer upon us, I'm sure you will be seeing more of these images posted. Hopefully I can get on the other side of the rock to photograph my husband in one of these precarious poses too! 

Let's all hope the rope holds me.....
