Tomorrow

The last minute retreat to the ocean to watch the earth roll away from the sun. I was looking for a composition when I found inspiration from my daughter. Setting up for the classic seascape shot, I looked back to witness my daughter tucked behind the tree branches taking pictures with my phone. Afterwards I retreated back to where she was sitting, bored with my compositions, to suddenly understand the amazing scenery she was seeing all along.

The wind was blowing steady and I wanted the branches to be sharp with the water and clouds blurry from their movement. Moments like these call for multiple shots for future use. I shot a high shutter, large aperture shot of the branches to keep them sharp as well as a slow shutter, small aperture for the water and clouds for movement. Back at the dark room, which is in my very bright computer… I blended them together to create the best of the sunset to which I credit my daughter Makayla.
