I just came across this image I captured years ago. It lived on an old hard drive and wasn’t given a second thought. This shot is pretty different from how I shoot now but I wanted to share it here because like all photographs we make, it’s part of the process. I feel like I am a better photographer because of images like this one. Being able to self critique and see what did and didn’t work here. It’s a constant learning game and I’m sure I’ll share something another 5 years from now that I’m capturing in this present time and be able to express the same sentiment.
I feel like that’s part of the beauty of art; it keeps growing and if we put enough work in, so long as we’re doing it right, we do too.
The funny thing about photographers is we are typically the first to run out in a passing rain shower and exclaim “oh man this weather is great!”.
For this view we hiked down to the beach in a pretty heavy rainstorm in hopes it would let up sometime soon. Then 45 minutes after arriving, the rain let up and offered this beautiful view.
There’s a vast ocean beyond that fog. We just had to be patient as to when it decided to reveal itself to us in all its glory.
