Plans. Changed.

Plans to photograph a landscape are at the mercy of the weather. Yesterday afternoon, I visited a very nice coastal place. A few compositions came to mind along and a plan to come back today started shaping up. Today’s weather forecast was for clear skies with a bright Sun…

Last night, the sky gave us clues that changes were literally up in the air. Elongated high clouds, isolated and dark low clouds and strong Sunset colors were all indicators that rain is on the way.

This morning proved last night’s Sky correct. Mid-morning today, clouds started rolling over the area from the North, pushed by a quite chilly wind. The nice Sunrise we enjoyed was quickly followed by a quite dull gray blanket, breaking from time to time to let our star shine thru.

The place I planned to go to today is about 75 mins away by bicycle (no car available to me right now…). So, I did not want to take the risk to ride to a place with suboptimal conditions for my project and be disappointed. ¬†There are other photographic things to do, like processing rolls of films… Why not taking life one day at a time?
