There have been moments when the elements conspired to watercolor caste a masterpiece and strand me too far distant from my camera to make a permanent record. For such moments as these one can only take grateful pause to sear the experience indelibly into memory. But on this particular late summer evening in a fine misting rain I knew I’d only have a few minutes to bring camera to bear. It was out of sight but fortunately not out of reach in time and with last light fading I managed to get off a few remarkable frames. I find now that if I let my consciousness drift with the scarlet eddies off the pier a sense of serenity soon displaces my distresses of the day and I am overcome with peace.
