Landscape Photography in 21 Minutes

 

Landscape photographers are known for scouting a location hours, days, even weeks ahead of time and simply waiting for the best light and conditions to come along.

 

But every once in awhile, it goes like this:

 

07:10am Cat wakes you up

 

07:10:30am Look out window and see the sky exploding

 

07:11am Search frantically for shoes

 

07:12:30am Head out the door with camera gear still wearing pajama bottoms and crocs

 

07:14am Notice new staircase is complete down to a nice looking beach (not intended destination) and pull over

 

07:15am Arrive at beach and set camera up

 

07:16am Take first photo

 

07:21am Take this photo

 

07:31am Coffee and breakfast back home
