I believe that we as photographers have more than our share of a momentary lapse of reason. We go out in extreme conditions, cold, hot, wind, rain. We hike down to spots that normal people won’t go just to get the shot. We stay up late, wake up early, waste gas money, just to go on location.
Sometimes we are rewarded, sometimes not. Always a gamble.
This is an example. I live in AA county, yet drove to Germantown/Boyds. Why? Because the Weather Channel and Accuweather forecasted clouds here on this afternoon. Annapolis, clear skies. And a sky without clouds is like surfing without waves. Boring! Fortunately, I am familiar with Black Hill Regional Park, so knowing where to go for a sunset is not a problem. Well, maybe it is. There are 2 great locations. I was originally on the other section of this park when my buddy Pete texted me to say where he was. This location turned out to be less crowded, and nicer, too, on this afternoon.
