It is a rare day that I don't start out on the beach, knowing that the early light will often offer clues as to where I need to be to get the most out of the morning.  J. B. Priestley said it perfectly --- "I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new day, a fresh try, one more start, with perhaps a bit of magic waiting somewhere behind the morning."  This past week offered some great examples of where that magic was just waiting to be found.  It's always important to remember that the best light might be offered from another source, or be viewed from another perspective.

The Golden Hour - With way less than an hour of light to work with, it is often a gamble as to where to shoot the start of the day...beach, pier, marina...or something in-between. Trying a little different angle on things this morning, I was locked in without a Plan B. One wonders what this boat's plan of the day looks like...whatever it is, it will be done in style!

Strawberry Moonlight - When the sun and a lack of clouds conspire to make a morning shot a non-starter, it is time to look for another source of light. This morning's setting Strawberry Moon provided just the thing. The sun still rose in the east, though this morning my sights were set to the west on what was, as opposed to the east and what would be.
