When Patience Pays......

June 03, 2018  •  1 Comment

In planning a trip to Rhode Island, I came across images of the Castle Hill Lighthouse and decided that I wanted a shot for my portfolio. It was a quick drive to the location and then a short walk through some trees and there it was....the Castle Hill Lighthouse. What was also there was a cloudy overcast sky which was going to yield zero color at sunset. I debated whether to set up or chalk the evening up to a bust. Well, since I was already there, I opted to stay and set up the tripod and camera for some shooting. It was a bit challenging as I had to set up on slippery rocks that were not flat but rather angled. There was a slight chill in the air but no rain in sight. I waited for sunset and things just weren't developing. I decided to exercise some patience and hang in there. As I watched out over the water, slowly the clouds began to open providing a window for the rays from the setting sun. The light from the lighthouse went on and low and behold beautiful color began to appear. The color intensified and soon the water and rocks were bathed in a beautiful pink cast. The final result is what you see below. I composed the shot so as to include the rocks as a foreground leading you to the lighthouse. Patience is a virtue.....
