10/24/07 - Lighting Opps. in Nature

As many photographers know, Mom Nature will sometimes present opportunities that, unless you take advantage, you may never see again. Such was the case this past weekend. The first clue was when, while talking to my wife on my cell, she informed me that it was dark and overcast in Marshfield. Meanwhile, one town over, I was experiencing a bright and clear day.

As I continued to drive towards Marshfield, I observed the cause. I quickly pulled into the Driftway in Scituate, and captured the moment.

The cloud cover above and the sun lighting the grass from the right makes this a dramatic image that would have been tough to capture otherwise
