That often seems to be the rule in photography especially around dawn or sunset. The light changes rapidly and if you wait even a few minutes (sometimes seconds) you will miss it. I almost missed this image entirely. I was at my computer with the shade drawn when Diane called out "Look out your window." I pulled the shade and saw this. Well not exactly the above. There were trees in the way, not to mention the window. I grabbed the G10 and hurried out to get some photos. The clouds were moving, the sun was setting and within a half dozen shots it was gone except for the bits I 'froze' in pixels.
If I'm to be pigeon-holed as anything I'd have to say "I'm a photographer". I didn't make my living that way (retired from a civil service job in the Dept. of Labor) but photography is the thing I have done the longest (56 years and counting) and most passionately. My degree is in fine art ceramics and I continue to have an interest in art and crafts. On a political scale I'm in the same neighborhood with Mahatma Gandhi according to politicalcompass.org but mostly politics annoy me. It seems to be about pushing your views on others. I wish we could find a way to live without politics. I am a student of religion but not a church-goer. I like being out in nature either hiking or in my canoe.
