only a moment

This morning Ari and I went to Kings Beach, Victor Harbor on our early morning poodle walk. The weather looked promising–overcast and still after the overnight rain. I carried my medium camera and tripod down to the beach along with a special poncho to provide me and the gear with protection from the passing showers. It was 7.15 am and the surfers were already riding the rolling waves off Kings Head. The tide had just turned and it was going out. It looked good.

I started scouting around amongst the rocks with my digital camera for some subject matter from where I’d left off the last time we were down here:

seaweed+rock

seaweed+rock

Suddenly, the the soft early morning light went. I'[d taken a couple of pictures. The cloud cover disappeared it was all blue sky and bright sunshine. Just like that. The photo shoot was all over. I’d completely misread the conditions. There was nothing else to do but walk back along the cliffs to the car.
