It is so hard to remain patient with photography. It is definitely a discipline. You think you got the shot you want, so you pack up and go back home. I try to force myself now to stick around just a little bit longer each time.
I don’t know about anyone else, but I tend to “predict” what the clouds are going to do and whether or not it is going to be a good sunset, or sunrise. I am often wrong.
In this first image, the light was just magical and I snapped several frames of basically the same scenery.
Not ten minutes later, this scene formed. Looking the same direction. It’s amazing how the sun can move just a little bit and make dramatic changes to the light and colors.
