Archive Photo of the Day: David at Watchman Lookout

Crater Lake in the background, my son at age two in the foreground at Watchman Lookout... how can this not be one of my favorite photos?

As a (theoretically) more sophisticated photographer today, ten years later, I can see that this is a very simple photograph. Find a good point of view, use a wide enough angle and small enough aperture to capture both foreground and background, make sure the horizon is level but the foreground line isn't... it's completely unsophisticated. But it's still a lovely shot that captures a lot of good memories.
