"Outside magazine always gives me these great stories to shoot and this one was no different.This picture was taken—but never published—for a feature story on Dean Potter, who spends his summer in Yosemite climbing enormous rocks and he enjoys camping out in the open almost all season long. I love his free spirit and great sense of adventure. This shot was taken on a climb named 'The Rostrom' overlooking the valley below where he was camping. My assistant and I had to portage my 8 x 10 camera over very large rocks in order to get this vantage point. I wanted to photograph something different that the usual Yosemite Valley postcard picture."
