You are forever at the mercy of the group (and for good reason when traveling with a large group of high school students). The staff is always concerned with their safety and of course staying together and keeping on the rigorous schedule. So often ... my photos were taken thru the window of the coach, or had lots of people in them (who I didn't know) as we, most of the time - didn't stop for photo opportunities - we quickly had to snap and keep up.
Although that is a great disadvantage for a photographer, it is a great way to get a taste of the different areas - and Lord willing - if you ever have the chance to go back - you can go to those areas you tasted - and really liked - and then have to time to really explore.
This photo was shot thru the window of the coach, as we were driving. The majesty of our surroundings were indescribable. The power of God as seen thru His amazing and beautiful creation.
I was in awe . . .
