Manfrotto CarbonOne tripod: $350
Kirk BH-3 ball head: $275
Leaving them on top of an 11,000-foot-high ridge and not realizing it til you've already made the 120-mile drive home: priceless
Photo: A view of Pikes Peak from 75 miles away, with backlit morning rain clouds [click to enlarge]. This is where I left my tripod this morning. Luckily, I know someone who works not far from here, and he sent one of his crew up to recover it. Unfortunately, I'm pretty much out of commission until I get it back. Guess I'll be returning to this spot on Monday, whether I planned to or not.
