Week Two - Curveball

September 28, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

I did it!  I just doubled the amount of blog posts i've made since my last attempt at this.  The sad thing is, it is just my second consecutive week and it was still an uphill battle.

I was thrown a curve ball this past week as I was feeling "under the weather".  Translation, I was sick!  The sickest i've felt in quite some time.  This screwed up many plans, but I still managed shoot some photos and still yet, managed to come away with some decent images and learn a few things.

We spent a day at our beach condo on the Gulf of Mexico.  Mainly to clean things up and do some needed repairs from the busy summer rental season.  When we arrived, I first went down to the beach to get some sunset shots.  The sunset (as beautiful as it was) just wasn't as photogenic/dramatic as I had hoped.

Bleh SunsetThe colors were beautiful and this shot does not do the scene any justice, but it's just not very attention grabbing. I was not alone on the beach and everyone else was snapping shots of this sky.  What many didn't do was explore the whole scene.  Behind us was a much more dramatic cloudscape and better subject matter for the foreground.

Looking Inland While the western sky was missing drama, the eastern sky was very much alive I always try to explore the entire scene.  Sometimes you get rewarded with images you never intended to capture.  Till next week!
