Nearly Sunset at Bandon Beach
As a photographer of the landscape, I live for the edges of the day; sunrise, sunset and the golden hours surrounding those celestial events. There comes a time in every photographic day when you no longer want to look at the world through a viewfinder or a ground glass. It’s that time of the day when you just want to sit and enjoy the beauty in front of you and not have to photograph it.
Many times I have forsaken my camera just to sit, watch, wait and experience the beauty of the world. There comes a time when you just have to put the camera down and enjoy the scene in front of you. At that time photography is not important, but living your life is. Learn to find those moments and relish them. Sit, watch and absorb the beauty before you. If so inclined, applaud the Deity for allowing you to experience the beauty of the world.
