In 2002, I went on a geology field trip to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Before hiking into the canyon, I took a shot of our class hiking down into the canyon with an old Olympus C-3000Z point and shoot (a crazy, 3.2 megapixes).
Recently, a publisher contacted me to license the photo for the cover of a geology textbook. After negotiating a price, I happily agreed! The featured photo is below:
Interestingly enough, a former girlfriend who was on the same trip (not in this frame), would proclaim a number of months later that I was a “poor photographer.” Hah, it’s ironic that this particular image ended up being licensed!
