Getting After It

 
Had the opportunity yesterday (6/5/14) to go photograph one of my favorite spots on the island.  One that I havent really visited much in the recent past.  The sky that afternoon was a bit hazy but overcast with high clouds.  Without seeing much of the horizon I made a comment to a fellow visiting photog

Of course the bottom line gives it away.  After climbing down the trail, a trail that has been much degraded in the last few years.  By which I mean slopey dirt/mud and the crux at the end where the ropes are in bad need of some maintenance to say the least).  I dropped my bag in my desired location and walked around a little scouting for future projects.  The sky being very suspect.  As I got back to my bag and wasted some time (read: playing hearts), I poked my head around the rock and the sun was lighting up a tiny section of cloud on the horizon.  Gave me some hope.  As the sun set the glow stayed…then started to grow…that is when I sent the text.  Over the next 10 minutes or so the color crept over the sky causing everything to glow as I giddly laughed to myself….chance of epic.  Of course the hike back up to the car still was ahead of me…but we all know up is always easier 🙂
Thanks!
