Every now and then, the light is so spectacular, it’s almost the duty of a photographer to stop and take photos. The photo below was taken on my way home from work one late afternoon last December. There was such incredible warmth in the sunlight (in terms of light quality, not temperature) I just had to pull off the road and find something to photograph. I ended up at a Fish and Wildlife Service Waterfowl Production Area just west of where I live.
It’s at times like these, I’m once again grateful to have a job that allows me the flexibility to pull off the road and grab the camera when the time is right. (There are some other nice things about the job too.)
