When an Image Presents Itself

“Sunset on Bandon Beach, Oregon”

When an unique opportunity presents itself to me, I try to drop whatever I am focused on and create an image from that special gift.  This evening, I was practicing Black and White, long exposure photography.  I was struggling with the waning light.  As the sun dropped below the horizon, this wonderful gift appeared before my eyes.  I immediately pulled off my 15-stop neutral density filter, refocused, reset my exposure and was able to capture and create this special moment. This wonderful light lasted for just a few seconds.

Lesson Learned:  Always be ready to immediately step back and take advantage of the wonderful gifts that are presented to me
