Sometimes I think the Sun is screwing with me. I swear it took forever for it to get to the point behind the tree where and when I wanted to shoot. I got all set up and framed and focused, and sat around like those photographers I’ve seen. It took about a minute for me to realize why I don’t fit in with that branch of photographer, the Sun was taking freaking forever and there were sparkly things and cool reflections elsewhere drawing my attention. I packed up and did my traveling thang, stopping and starting, changing lenses, waiting for the old guy that decided to follow me around and tell me the history of rattle snakes and rabid bobcats in the greater Granite Basin area to take a breath or have to pee(took about ten minutes, the pee won), snapping the shutter all over that beach clearing, then, of course, I noticed my shadow was dwindling! Head pops up from behind viewfinder, turns to the west, $#@^%&$%, ran to my spot, lowered the tripod, $%#(^!, wrong lens, changed out the lens, eyed the view finder and snapped this and a portrait angle, and bye bye Sun. Someday, when I’m a little older, I’ll be able to do that sitting and waiting for the perfect shot thing, but I’ll have to bring a really interesting book or something, and then I’ll get so caught up in the plot I’ll forget the shot, or I’ll be in the bathroom when the shot arrives!
