Archive photo of the day: Maggie and sky

Maggie and sky, originally uploaded by The Bacher Family.
On a visit to San Francisco to help with some training at Golden Gate National Recreation Area, I snapped this shot of Olympic National Park's volunteer coordinator, Maggie Tyler, as she stood on a rock wall above me. I realize it's not a stellar photograph in the traditional sense, but I love it because sometimes it's just fun to look at things from a totally new perspective. In that sense, I like the great expanse of sky above Maggie's head, and the feathery white clouds that seem to envelope her like an aura. I also like the look on her face, literally looking down her nose from under her glasses with just a touch of a grin on her lips. It's a lot more fun to look at, in my opinion, than a simple traditional portrait.
