Spotlight On The Shore

Some photos are planned...a product of researching maps and guidebooks, contemplating angles and compositions, and returning later in the day (or even later in the year) for the right light.

Then there are the images that fall into your lap.

When the sun unexpectedly shot a brilliant beam of light through the gloom and across Baker Lake, I literally dropped my dinner and ran to the shoreline. The gray skies returned within a minute, but it was enough time to capture a couple of frames.

Thank goodness I'd been too lazy to take my camera off the tripod.

I know what you mean... this is a great spur of the moment shot of fleeting northwest light...
