fleeting moments and waiting to click

When taking photographs and in this case outdoor photographs, sometimes the moment catches you by surprise while at other times you wait for the perceived image.


I was at the beach on a photoshoot for a documentary movie taking portraits, when I suddenly caught sight of this beautiful flock of birds.
I wish they had stayed a bit longer or I had spotted them a few seconds earlier so that I could get the exact image I wanted. However this is the nature of photography, turn your head and the moment has passed!













Looking down at this beautiful view I caught sight of this bird perched on a rock. I waited a few seconds and off he went.














Using a rock as a tripod I waited for the moment but in this case while the camera was being exposed.













One thing we can be sure of is that the sun rises and sets everyday. I waited for about 30 minutes for the sun to emerge from behind the mountains.
