This evening Nicole and I went out to dinner with her friend Nicci and afterwards headed out to Vista House. The temperature was just about freezing but with the wind chill you could easily take ten degrees off so it was frigid on the top of the bluff that overlooks the Columbia River. Nicole and Nicci quickly gave up, the winds were too bad and there were gusts strong enough to move a loaded tripod. Still, I am stubborn so I widened the leg spread and kept shooting. Within ten minutes I was having a hard time feeling my fingers and I got a couple good shots so I was happy to jump back into the warm cozy car and head back into town. It was worth the discomfort as we had a new moon a couple days ago and the stars are spectacular!
