Surprise!

April 29, 2017

It was a spur of the moment decision to drive to the coast yesterday afternoon to shoot the sunset, but there I was, busily shooting in one of my favourite coastal locations (West Wittering) and at one of my favourite times of day (in the post sunset transition zone)... and, surprise! The clearing skies revealed a beautiful crescent moon that popped into view from behind a mackerel cloudscape. I had no idea it would be there - but I'm delighted it was.

 

Some very successful shots can be unplanned for - and impulsively going to a familiar landscape location without consulting the ephemeris or the tide charts can yield serendipitously satisfying results. So always try and be somewhere... Because the more you are always somewhere, the more something beautiful will eventually happen.
