As Luck Would Have It. January 30, 2009

Posted by littlebangtheory in Art and Nature.

This morning, at work, I headed up to the top of the nearest hill to find cell phone service; there isn’t any in the valley below, and I needed to call my boss.

I wandered around a bit ’till I got three bars, then pulled over in front of a ramshackle farm just in time to see the eastern sky suddenly pierced by a column of fire as the rising sun rolled into view.

I threw Gizmo on the box, booted the ISO up to 500 for the hand-held capture, and got this:

fire in the sky

I hope my boss didn’t mind waiting.

Yeah, I know, I said I was outta here, but then I remembered this shot, and I’m pretty good with sharing.

Now I’m really gone.  😉

When you publish the TCR Coffee Table Book, you’ll be giving us all a discount, right? 😉

Randall, I might dream it to be so. But I’m a ways short of that, so I hope you’ll enjoy my offerings as they are.

My personal dream, if I may exhibit such hubris, is to give up working for the state, and to learn how to do this right, this photography thing, and to somehow make a living at it.

Oh well, we all have dreams. Wish me luck!
