It's a plan; we're headed to Lamoine State Park for a photo shoot.
The next question is what to bring on this pre-dawn outing. Extra gear isnot only a good idea, it's a must. Unfortunately, in the rush to beat the winter morning crowds, a few (minor) items were overlooked and left behind. One being a battery for the Nikon D300 and another being the memory card for said camera. Luckily the D50 was packed along with a weakly charged battery. Hmmm - not the best scenario for sunrise in 4 or 5 degree (batteryzapping) temps.
After only a few photos the 'low battery' warning was on. So, back in the truck to warm up; both photographer and battery. Leaving the camera outside to avoid condensation and the battery safely tucked in an inside pocket, we waited.
