Should I Stay or Should I Go by gwrhino Should I Stay or Should I Go by gwrhino
one of the most difficult things to do in this business is deciding which way to jump. That is, deciding where to go.

So based on conditions and best educated guesses you pick a spot. Then you go to your appointed location and stand around second guessing yourself until it happens or not. Its a function of the human condition to start concluding that the grass is greener somewhere else. In this case I was pacing around in the fog, dead sure that the weather was breaking up somewhere else.

Why would I feel that way? Why not? It sure wasn't happening here. But then the voice of reason started to compete with the swelling panic rising like bile in my throat that I would manage to waste another opportunity and screw yet another pooch. And so, after waging a complete Shakespearian drama in head (complete with the ghost sequences), I stayed, eventually shooting one of the great sequences of my career...

From whatever little experience I have, most of the times that I have ignored the feeling that something good is happening somewhere else and stayed put something good happened where I was. Too bad it isn't a lesson learned for me yet.

The ambiance of your photograph is fantastic

thats fine until you stand and WATCH it happening "over there" knowing that theres no way you can change positions and make it in time. Now jump the wrong way 5 times in a row, and you start wondering whos got the voo-doo doll and why does he/she dislikes you...

Its even worse when you can change positions but nothing good to compose in the direction where the light is going crazy. Happened to my girlfriend and me last week for four mornings in a row. :censored: I guess you could attribute it to lack of experience from our part but I am pretty sure someone up there was playing games with us.:)

Phenomenal! I love that lighting and the low clouds. Definitely makes me want to get up to the canyon sometime this winter.
