Had a chance to get out and take advantage of an approaching front of stormy clouds at sunset this weekend. I ended up wedging myself into the rocks and braved a few scares of larger waves reaching me. I timed it so that my bravery coincided with a turning tide to minize any risk. Ironically it was only upon leaving and climbing over some rocks far from where I had been that a large wave got me slightly wet. Luckily the camera was spared much exposure to salt water.
Just when I thought the best light was behind me the sky opened magically and the landscape was blanketed with intense red light. At that same time I just happened to be at a spot where a rose had washed up on the beach. This area is often a location many wedding photos are taken. How long this rose had been here or where it came from I have no idea. I made the best of a fleeting moment with the great lighting. Hopefully it doesn’t come across as too cheezy. Personally I like it.
