One can have all the camera gear and mountains of instructions that can be googled at a moments notice, but sometimes you simply get lucky when taking the shot. As I did here.
Finally I had an hour or two to myself at Ucluelet, Vancouver Island, and wouldn’t you know it, the rain began falling and my back began hurting. As beautiful as the setting was my stars simply weren’t aligning.
However, looking at this photo now none of those things really matter as it would appear my stars did align. Plus I had the loveliest chat with a mature man who was utterly delightful out walking his dog.
There’s always a silver lining!
