Congratulations to Beth Howell for winning the Adventure Photography Assignment with the image, “Taft Point Slacklining.”

“Taft Point in Yosemite is a favorite spot for late-afternoon photography,” says Howell. “On this autumn day, I set out hoping to capture a nice sunset with El Capitan in the distance. When I arrived at the spot I planned to shoot from, I was surprised to find a high-line, also called a slackline, set up and a talented individual enjoying a walk on that thin piece of webbing thousands of feet above Yosemite Valley. They appeared as confident on the slackline as I was walking the trail to Taft Point.

“I decided to spend some time watching (in awe) and take the opportunity to photograph the action. Although I didn’t get the shot I had pre-visualized, it’s important to be able to take a step back and appreciate the experience of photography—not just the end result. In this case, I watched a remarkable performance and got a great shot, too!”

Canon 5D Mark III, Canon EF24-105mmL. Exposure: 1/50sec @ f/11, ISO 800.
