No matter how much you over think or plan something, there’s always an element that’s completely out of your control. This morning was the perfect proof of that. I’ve spent countless hours scouting shots, planning angles, waiting for the right weather and re shooting until I get the “shot” I’m looking for.
Then you have this shot, I woke up a little late, almost convinced myself to stay in bed and sleep in. I ended up making a mad dash for the car, drove north with no particular location in mind just trying to beat the first bit of light. I arrived at this beach (I had never been here before) and found this little outcrop of rocks along the shore where the waves seemed to be crashing over them just perfectly. So I figured this would be where I watched the sun come up and I got my camera all setup and started firing off images . I was really happy with what I was getting, some subtle pinks in the sky, and the water was like silk on the rocks and the shore in the foreground. Then out of nowhere as if Mother Nature said “But wait… there’s more!” this rainbow just showed up and took it right over the top.
It’s a good thing I didn’t miss this one!!
