An Opportunity Missed by hougaard An Opportunity Missed by hougaard
This was taken in pitch blackness, 70 minutes after sunset. Exposure was 6 minutes, ISO400, f/7.1. I was shooting so late because me and my workshop client were waiting for the moon to rise. After 2 hours in an icy wind we gave up and went home. As we drove away a blood red full moon rose on the horizon, dissapearing and reappearing through the clouds. It took me a good week to get over the shot that I missed, but so we learn to be patient :)

Arniston, South Africa

Beautiful! There are shots that miss and that's a shame, but there are also shots where the miss actually makes the shot :)

Lovely pic. :) Sorry about the one that got away. :cry: I totally understand! I have had some great shots go wrong due to timing and BAD batteries etc. We all have our missed shots.
There will be another day....
:D
