Challenge #2 in the Timing the Shot Just Right series. Hosted by camcom12.
Challenge has finished
Were you lucky to capture a unique event? Where just having the camera in hand or set correctly to capture the image was a dash of sheer luck or serendipity? It might be something you were expecting to see, or not. It might be a once-a-year, or a once-in-a-lifetime shot. Examples might be a dog's facial expression while catching a frisbee, an icicle dropping from a roof, or the juxtaposition of unique items in one single place at the same time.
