Somewhere in the Islands-I always teach folks to take advantage of photographing and practicing in your own backyard. We all have this wanderlust to travel the globe and take pictures in far off places. But sometimes you just need to go outside no matter where you live and wait for the “golden hour” at sunset. For some that hour is around sunrise. More power to ya’. I’m not a morning person, so that’s a stretch. This photo was taken just down the street. As sunset approaches each evening I watch the skies to see if any magic is possible. If it is, I grab the gear and take a 5 minute walk down the road and setup at water’s edge. This photo can be anywhere. I imagine it’s Florida, California, New Orleans, North Carolina, Hawaii, the Caribbean, the south Pacific, just about anywhere that has palm trees. Try it sometime. Let your imagination take you away.
