“Some say the world will end by fire, some say that it will end by ice”

I just returned from a weekend trip to the Grand Canyon, and it’s safe to say that I got skunked by the weather on all the days I was there. Cloudless sunsets and sunrises, and not much snow in the canyon. Aah well, it helps to think that I did luck out locally one evening here in San Diego. The original plan was to hike up and catch a sunset from the top of the trail, but given that we started late, we decided to see it from the coastline at the base of the trail. In the end, it was a wise decision because the sky just exploded for a good 20 minutes. It kept getting more and more intense over time, and at one point, I wasn’t even sure my camera could catch the light properly.

How was this shot taken:

Step 1 : Get soaked without warning by a rogue wave and commence the cold cha cha jiggle
Step 2 : Fumble with your tripod trying hard to pull out the legs for a stable base
Step 3 : Shoot as many frames as you can before the light goes away.
Step 4: Rinse and Repeat

In truth, I came away with quite a few keepers this evening, and not all of them involved getting reflections from the sand. I guess I was lucky to be in the right place at the right time.
