Every time I head out with my camera I learn something new. Each and every time - without fail. One recent wintery morning, the lesson was a simple one.
It's to wait. Wait for a few minutes. And then wait for a few minutes more. When you first arrive at a location the beauty of the moment may not be immediately recognizable. I was early for sunrise on this particular morning and it looked like it was going to be unremarkable. It was cold and I was tempted to head home but I recalled a quote and decided to wait.
Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
If I'd left I would have missed the scene above. The storm rolled in fast and furious and thank goodness... I waited for it.
