I went out for a walk on the beach this morning, greeted by a damp chill that made me glad I had grabbed the warmer jacket and the fleece hat. There were few humans willing to brave the elements but the pelicans were having a great time soaring south on the wind.
And then the light changed. Oh, man, the light was gorgeous.
All I had was my iPhone so I used it to capture what I could.
When I got home and downloaded the images, they were grainy but the colors were there. So I haven’t edited them at all. This is, as the pros say, SOOC (Straight Out Of Camera). They look like paintings, not photos.
There are only three of them but they seem a matched set to me and I really love them. Sometimes it’s not the equipment or the settings or the photographer. Sometimes it’s just being in the right spot at exactly the right time.
People talk about perfect timing, but I think everything is perfect in its moment; you just want to capture that.
