Just an iPhone Photo, You Had To Be There

I’m driving from Colorado to Wyoming to fish the upper Green River. The sun is going down and I’ve just passed over Flaming Gorge when I come upon this view. I stop the car and walk out to the edge. The car door is open and Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain” is blaring. The wind is cold at my back and strong enough that I have to lean into it, like it’s saying, go on, do it. I have goose bumps. It feels like a perfect moment. It makes me think of Spalding Gray. Sad, I feel sure he had one more perfect moment left in him. Maybe this all sounds pretty fruity if you weren’t there but it reminds me that it’s easy to get so focused on the fishing and the shooting photos that I miss the perfect moments. Look up from the water once in a while.
