In keeping with my previous post on the subject of waiting for light, I recently found myself waiting for the light once more.
This time, a planned trip to Kananaskis for a sunset shoot turned into an opportunity to shoot light bursts through heavy cloud. It was bitterly cold beside The Wedge Pond alongside highway 40, but with clouds clawing at the mountain tops and autumnal colours on the hillside in the foreground, it was too good a location to pass up.
My 15 year old canon 100-400 lens, handheld, was raised and lowered repeatedly as the light failed to fall on that autumnal foreground. I was out with a friend and as the time slipped by we discussed calling it off at the location and moving on, but we both knew a beautiful image was likely if the light just fell in the right place, so we stuck it out.
As you can see by the adjacent image, it was eventually worth the wait and another portfolio worthy image was captured.
