A beautiful shot that almost wasn’t

Every week, I see amazing views, things that might be a great shot, and I usually don’t stop to shoot it because LIFE GETS IN THE WAY, and there are places to go, and deadlines to meet.

This time, we saw something amazing and actually stopped.

Here’s what we saw from the car, which didn’t match what our eyes saw.

No big deal, right? It’s a sunset. 

Instead of going to our destination, we flipped around, stopped the car and got out to actually shoot this. And no, I didn’t have the Nikon of Infinite Beauty, so this next photo came from my phone (Pixel 3).

That’s uncropped, unedited and untouched. It may not be the best shot of the dozen I took. I’ll have to check.

Doesn’t matter, because I’m thrilled to have shot it. So worth it. 

I’ll try to shoot more, wherever I go. Not just on vacations overseas or when there’s an event like a wedding. This photo happened on a normal day that just happened to be when the Sun God decided to go crazy and paint the sky.
