Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting

20120724-IMG_0423

 

In just moments, the day turns into night. The bright orange and red sun setting behind the mist, leaving the sky to the moon sliver. The waters cool and still with the surrounding life resting from the day.

To photograph is to hold one’s breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It’s at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.

  1. Beautiful shot of a gorgeous place I also love in Maine. I was going to do a Sunrise or Sunset too πŸ™‚

  2. This is an amazing photo! The sunset and waning moon in one scene – clearly defined. Aren’t you glad we can capture moments that are “fleeting.”

    • Thank you so much Charlie. I had to scratch my head on this one and find a photo that really showed fleeting. I almost showed the glacier mountains of the Andes as they are starting to melt.
