When plans go awry…


Last one from my stop by Nubble Light last weekend… I promise 🙂

I had originally been hoping to use tidepools along the shoreline to frame a reflection of the lighthouse, and although they were there as advertised, my plan didn’t quite work out. As I lowered my tripod all the way to the ground, I splayed the legs as far as I could. I lay on my belly to see through the viewfinder to frame a composition, but at that point I realized my plan wasn’t going work out. Sure enough, there would have been a nice reflection to include in the frame… if it weren’t for one problem… the water in the tidepools was frozen! No worries… I settled for using the tidepools as interesting foreground elements, and I went on to thoroughly enjoy the rest of my morning spent exploring this wonderful place.

      Thanks Karen… though disappointed about the lack of tidepool reflections… who could be unhappy about being in a place like this 🙂

      Thanks truels… I made the decision to just let the island and the lighthouse go to black as a silhouette. It seemed to make sense with the gorgeous blues.

I'd love to hear from you...
