A bridge to somewhere

I spent the Holidays working on the writing phase of my latest book project, sharing and posting my Top Images of 2011, and revised my New Work Portfolio. Now I want to get back to just sharing some of my other images.

I’d been busy shooting a nesting Cormorant rookery in the fog next to this ugly old train bridge. As soon as the fog began to lift, suddenly I glanced over and the bridge was bathed in this beautiful soft, yet warm light. What was ugly just minutes before was suddenly transformed into something picturesque. It just goes to reinforce what I teach all of my photo workshop students:

“A boring subject in great light will always make a better photo than a great subject in boring light.” – Me.

    “A boring subject in great light will always make a better photo than a great subject in boring light.” Well said. Non-photographers would badger me when I don’t shoot at what they see as spectacular but have no clue that the lighting is not cooperating. Nice image (as others in this blog) here BTW. Cheers.
