They say a picture is worth a thousand words. But what about those moments when you encounter the most breathtaking scene but can’t photograph it?
Last night leaving work was one such moments. It was just past 5 o’clock, and the clear sky was filled with one of the most absolutely stunning sunsets I’ve ever seen in my life.
Rounding a curve in the interstate, I gasped audibly upon suddenly seeing a harvest moon hanging low on the horizon like a scene straight from a film.
The sky in the direction I drove was a deep, blushing pink, and in my rearview mirror the sky was a neon orange.
In that moment, caught up with the harvest moon and pink sky in one direction and orange sky in the other, all I could think was how badly I wished I could photograph this scene to share with you guys.
But I was driving by myself, and even if I had been in the passenger seat, I’ve found that shooting the moon is very, very difficult in terms of getting the right lighting and focus.
So, I’m painting a picture with (fewer than) 1,000 words for you guys.
And hey, at least I got to my destination soon enough to snap this photo of the tail end of the sunset.
