Somewhere in the Coal Canyon of Colorado, I stood in a river bed. Maybe just a creek bed. It was anything but with only a bit of water flowing through. Waiting on rain to come and fill it. Rain that I could see moving in, but hoped that it would wait. Driving on wet dirt roads gives me a bit of a panic.
I was searching for horses. Ones I would eventually find, but we know that I’m not one to miss a photo opportunity if I was smart enough to take my camera.
I don’t quite remember this picture. However, to be fair I have upwards of an embarrassing amount of photos. This apparently happens when you have large gig SD cards, 10 days on the road, and not a lot else to do. Anyway, I do remember standing in the bank. I do remember snapping all kinds of pictures just see what came about. Apparently, this is one that came about.
It is an unintentional shot. I am not even sure what I was necessarily going for. The sky is not what I remember, but in the raw file it is just a grey wall. I thought that it was sunnier, but I also remember that the rain really was moving in and must have taken over more of the sky than I remembered at this point. I also think that it looks a bit on the long exposure side, which is strange because I wasn’t doing long exposures in this moment. I used a lens that I don’t normally use and a focal length that I don’t tend to play with. I might have to make this more of a habit. I also do not even remember putting a lot of thought into my scenery pictures on this hike. All of these combined….I have an unintentional shot.
An unintentional shot or an unintentional outcome, I’m not sure. What I am sure of is that I hope that you like it.
Live, laugh, love, and let it ride.
