Sometimes you get satisfaction from taking an average photo when you know the story behind it!

Got caught out in a storm this evening and had given up on getting any landscape photos. I managed to get back to the car when I noticed this lone Pelican.

It was chucking it down very cold and blowing a gale and my gear was in the car boot, but I thought it was worth the effort so I turned on my headlights to provide some fill light and while being blown around I managed to get a few captures!

    Doesn’t look like an average photo to me! Great capture!

  • thanks Barbara for the comment and thanks for reading the narrative! :) It just goes to show how all work speaks to people in different ways, and it goes to show that maybe sometimes I don’t always appreciate some of my own work fully !! :)

    i think most of us have a difficult time appreciating our own work. that’s why it’s good to put it out there!

  • I agree …. putting it out there is the hard part!! :)
