Capturing that fleeting light as the sun sets is the challenge of the photographer.
Snap too soon and the light has not fully matured to realize the potential of the sunset’s glorious hues.
Wait a moment too long and the beautiful shafts of light are gone . . . but the surfers nicely backlit and outlined as they head back in for the night.
It is all about choosing your moment, and recognizing that all moments are fleeting. And each moment can be full of potential, with hope for the next one and regret for the one that just passed. The real challenge? To just enjoy the moment you are in.
