The past two days Jodeyne and I have driven through the Scottish Highlands and having a blast meeting people and seeing things that only few people of this world would get to see. There is taking time to travel and there is time to simply just take a moment to take it all in. When I have my camera in my hand I get this impulsive feeling to shoot and not stop till my mind is full of material and needs time to digest it. Timing is everything! Remember that “TIMING IS EVERYTHING!” When you have this gut feeling inside your body and you know it is usually right follow that instinct and go for it.
Jodeyne and I were driving pretty smoothly and then we spotted this one amazing mountain filled with snow! I wanted to try to get this imaginative idea into my camera lens, well at least try too! So trying to read the clouds and the sun’s angle and the winds, I kept looking for a really great stop to start shooting the mountain as the sun was setting. Well before you know it along the road was this stunning vista that made my mouth drop and heart feel really warm.
I got out of the car and saw this monument that was about 17 feet tall made out of bronze. It is called the Commando Memorial and it was stunning. As I was waiting for the sun to bathe the mountains that I was hoping to capture, I turned back to look and see my wife sitting and always waiting patiently for me when I am shooting and bang I saw this shot. Need I saw anymore but my Angel along with the Soldiers were lit by the wonderful suns rays. Take a look and see and you will think just like I did can’t be real. Nope it really was real and i was there to see it! Again timing is everything so never not take the time to be ready for things to happen for your the way you dreamed it.
Have a great Friday everyone!
