untitled--12-3(Click on photo for MUCH better resolution!)


An early morning sunrise over a local swamp. The sun had just barely cleared the treeline before it was overtaken by an onslaught of approaching clouds, leaving the rest of the day overcast and dull. The entire shoot lasted about ten minutes and served as yet another example of having to “be there” before the event happens if you expect to capture it!

  3. The rays of the sun are gorgeous. Even if you are there, the lighting challenge makes it difficult to capture an amazing shot like this. Wonderful image.

    • Being there before the event happens is my #1 biggest stumbling block. I can easily identify a great photo op when I see it, but the trick is to know your go-to location and incoming weather conditions ahead of time so you can be ready and waiting when they occur. For a long time I was mostly just very lucky and every day was like hitting a perfect storm trifecta: Great light (weather), great location, got there in time. Lately? No so much. Unfortunately, the weather and light have been less than stellar and I’ve gotten lazy about getting out there and taking my chances.
