Re: Lighthouse frustration

There is a particular shot I’ve been trying to get of a local lighthouse with low sun shining from the left and the tide just washing over the breakwater. Needs enough cloud to be interesting but not cover the sun.

Missed my window earlier in the week due to rain. Missed the one before due to sheeting on the deck. Went tonight to check the timing, 20 mins too late on the sun and 40 mins too early on the tide. Still the cloudscape was good.

The two lovers were exactly where I planned to put the tripod.

Isn't it wonderful that even when you don't get what you were after, you still come home with a very nice capture. The two lovers even provide a scale that greatly add to its interest. Nice.
