Archive Photo of the Day: Recovery Corps

Recovery Corps, originally uploaded by The Bacher Family.
After great floods swept through Mount Rainier National Park in November 2006, the Student Conservation Association stepped in with a proposal to field a crack team of interns who would help with the recovery efforts and also coordinate the work of public volunteers. During orientation for the second season of the Corps, I was tasked with getting a group portrait, and after trying a number of different ideas, on a whim I laid down on the ground and asked everyone to gather around me. I shot the photo looking up into the sky with my fill flash, and I'm super pleased with the result. All I'd do differently today is to take several photos, not just one, and then use the others to photoshop open eyes onto the individual who blinked!
